Second SwAM Ocean seminar on adaptive management

Nearly 60 persons from the West Indian Ocean region participated in the second Adaptive management seminar for marine protected areas.

How to engage stakeholders, that was the topic. In the day-to-day management, and during designation of new MPAs.

Three cases were presented:

  • Locally Managed Marine Areas in Madagascar
  • Seychelles’ Marine Spatial Planning approach to the designation of new MPAs
  • The designation of the Kosterhavet National Park in Sweden

The seminar was in line with actions to address the challenges in the MPA Outlook report, so the Nairobi Convention.
