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!
