OceanWork Designs Workshop for IMPAC3

OceanWork joined IUCN, Coral Triangle Center and LMMA Network to design a workshop on locally managed marine protected areas (LMMAs) at the International Marine Protected Areas Congress (IMPAC3) in Marseille, France. The workshop engaged 150+ participants through lightening talks, small group discussion and a kava ceremony. The resulting set of recommendations for integrating LMMAs into global marine planning informed the work of ministers, NGOs and donors at the subsequent Ajaccio Ministerial Conference for Ocean Conservation.
