Project Details

Marine

The East African coast is faced with a rapidly deteriorating marine environment and we have since 2004 been working to encourage coastal communities to take ownership of their marine resources, and to manage them sustainably.

We are working on establishing more Beach Management Units (BMUs) to help manage more Community Conservation Areas (CCAs), thereby increasing the number of marine areas under sustainable management by local communities.

We were instrumental in the development of a management plan to guide ring net fishing in Kenya.
