Reef Resilience Webinar: Using rights-based incentive agreements in ocean and coastal conservation efforts
Local communities and NGOs worldwide are successfully using Marine Conservation Agreements (MCAs) to help implement various ocean and coastal conservation efforts, including the establishment of marine protected areas, collaborations on sustainable fisheries initiatives, and the creation of sea turtle protections. MCAs have also been used in projects involving coral reef and shellfish reef restoration, alternative livelihoods, marine spatial planning, climate change adaptation and scientific research.
This webinar will introduce MCA best practices generated from over 200 field projects and 20 in-depth feasibility analyses from around the globe. The webinar will also showcase two coral reef-related MCA case studies: a project in Indonesia which is being successfully implemented and a project in the United States which is under development. For more information on MCAs, see the online toolkit at: www.mcatoolkit.org.
