We advocate for inclusive, collective decision-making around natural resource use in the Northern Mozambique Channel, one of the world’s most biodiverse ocean regions that is at risk of overexploitation by extractive industries.
If not managed with caution, this could have serious consequences for the channel's biodiversity and the communities that depend on healthy marine and coastal ecosystems for their livelihoods and food security.
We work with governments and the private sector to ensure that marine spatial planning–which involves collaboratively mapping out where certain activities are permissible within a certain marine area–underpins the integrated ocean governance of large parts of the region, particularly the Northern Mozambique Channel, to ultimately ensure the protection of transboundary key biodiversity areas.
We enable integrated ocean governance of seascapes with the goal of integrating community-managed areas and marine protected areas with community fishing zones to ultimately ensure that social, environmental, and economic outcomes are achieved.
