Travel Scholarship – Locally-Managed Marine Areas Workshop at 2012 IUCN World Conservation Congress

The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) will be hosting the Locally-Managed Marine Areas Workshop (LMMA) at the 2012 IUCN World Conservation, which will be held on September 6-15, 2012 in Jeju, Korea.

The objectives of this workshop are (as cited on website):

  • To raise awareness and garner support among the international conservation community for the growing LMMA movement
  • Bring together representatives from LMMAs and regional LMMA networks in order to facilitate exchanges of ideas on best practices, lessons learned, common challenges and new approaches
  • To develop the foundations for a global virtual LMMA community, both documenting the scope of the global LMMA movement, as well as developing linkages for on-going communication and information exchange

The Travel Scholarship (sponsored by NGO Blue Ventures and the MacArthur Foundation) allows the opportunity for LMMA representatives to be a part of this workshop and in other events during the Congress. For more information about the workshop and scholarship, please click here!

Application due date: 17:00 GMT June 30th, 2012
