On 9 October at 17h CEST / 10am EST, the FishMPABlue2 project will hold a webisnar on the governance of Small-Scale Fisheries in Mediterranean MPAs.

Presented by Kate Hogg, Independent Consultant & Nathan Bennett of the University Of British Columbia, this webinar will provide an overview of management and governance of Small Scale Fisheries in MPAs and in particular in Mediterranean MPAs, based on the outcomes of FishMPABlue2, a three-year Mediterranean wide project. The project used a participative approach to apply and test a governance toolkit in 11 MPAs throughout the Mediterranean. In this webinar, the presenters will begin with a brief look at the project and then provide a general introduction to environmental governance and management asking what is the difference? They will then briefly introduce the “ins and outs” of the FishMPABlue governance toolkit and how it was and can be applied, with examples from the project case studies. They 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. It will last 1.5 hours.
