Enhancing adaptive management practices: a review and assessment of the effects of Small Community Areas (CCAs) on coral reefs
Recipient's Country: Kenya
Recipient Name: Kenya Marine and Fisheries Institute (KMFRI)
Purpose: This project aims to promote and institutionalise improved management practices and policies in seven co-managed, no-take marine protected areas along the Kenyan coast. The project will undertake participatory assessment of the effects of Communities Conserved Areas (CCAs) on biodiversity, with particular emphasis on the numbers of economically important reef fishes both inside and outside CCAs. It will provide information on relative performance; and guide the development of outreach products to help share the findings with stakeholders and wider audiences (e.g. coastal managers, scientists, students, policy-makers and general public sectors).
