Join us on the 9th October at 17.00 CEST/ 10.00 EST for a webinar on Governing Small-Scale Fisheries in Mediterranean MPAs.

Presented by: Kate Hogg, Independent Consultant, and Nathan Bennett of University Of British ColumbiaThis webinar which is part of the closure activities of the FishMPABlue2 project will provide participants with an overview of lessons learned about governance of SSF in Mediterranean MPAs. The project used a participative approach to apply and test a ‘governance toolkit’ in 11 MPAs throughout the Mediterranean. In this webinar we will begin with a general introduction to governance and management in the Mediterranean, with input from Nathan Bennett about a more international and global perspective. We will briefly introduce the “ins and outs” of the toolkit and how it was and can be applied, with examples from the project case studies. We will wrap up with a description of how the innovative participative approach applied in FishMPABlue2 helped create positive collaborations between fishers, MPA managers and researchers in advancing MPA governance and improving overall perceptions and MPA support.

The webinar is targeted at MPA practitioners, fisheries managers and NGOs alike. [Please note this webinar will last 1.5 hours]
