This project uses a unique village-led research and education approach to establish community-based Learning Hubs that empower villagers and partners to facilitate knowledge exchanges. The project focuses on raising awareness, building capacity and providing the tools which communities can use to improve their planning of natural resource management and fish ecology for sustainable fisheries. It will identify and promote best-practices for communities to manage and conserve fisheries resources. The project will also focus on partnership building between representatives from government, civil society, local people and the scientific community.
- 50% of community-based organizations (CBOs) have an improved understanding of fish ecology and are applying it to biodiversity conservation in 10 years’ time
- 20% of CBOs are implementing coordinated natural resource management and conservation strategies 10 years after the end period of the project.
- 30% of CBOs report the significant recovery of fisheries resources in 5 years.
