Natural resources management

Posted on

A new website is launched for people working in fisheries and natural resources management which takes an Ecosystem Approach to Fisheries Management (EAFM).  This approach balances the environmental, human and social well-being within governance frameworks. The website includes free materials and a toolkit developed by the EAFM consortium, which IMA is a member of. The materials serve two  purposes; a participatory training package for fisheries mid-level government and NGO managers, and also a toolkit for advocacy and policy- level influencing. As part of the EAFM consortium IMA took part in piloting the policy toolkit for leaders, executives and decision makers in Bangkok in June (see photo).  In recent years IMA has contributed to the mainstreaming of EAFM in fishery management and the good news is we can now see impact; the Philippine Government has formally institutionalised EAFM as a planning vehicle for its fishery management. It is also being undertaken with explicit links to integrated coastal management planning, bridging the divide that often emerges between fishery management and broader-scale coastal planning.
