Enhancing coastal and marine socio-ecological resilience and biodiversity conservation in the Western Indian Ocean

As of: September 2019

Objective and activities

The Western Indian Ocean (WIO) region lacks coherent systems of governance to support more diverse management of marine and coastal resources. As a result, local-level benefits from conservation are less effectively maximised, as resource users rarely play an equitable role in decision-making on the management of the resources. This project, implemented in Mozambique, Seychelles, Kenya and Tanzania, builds on existing experiences and knowledge to enhance socio-ecological resilience and biodiversity conservation by strengthening governance and management of marine and coastal resources. The project will engage at multiple levels in order to: i) Deliver tangible benefits through direct action at the local level ; ii) Strengthen the enabling institutional environment through policy influencing, advocacy, awareness and capacity building at national levels, and iii) promote regional collaboration and cross-sharing of knowledge to enhance uptake across multiple countries in the WIO region.
