CORDIO is also implementing a project Securing marine biodiversity through sustainably-financed and community-managed marine areas in coastal Mozambique”, in Cabo Delgado, northern Mozambique, that is funded by the European Union and led by the Zoological Society of London (ZSL). CORDIO is providing supporting scientific data to the establishment of community-run models for managing marine areas. We have contributed ecological and fisheries data to help Community Fisheries Councils (CCPs) establish and implement management plans, including no-take zones and temporary closures, and provided training on community based reef health monitoring using our manual. We are also providing training to the local NGO partner, AMA, and the government’s fisheries department and agencies to increase capacity and policy-level support for LMMAs.
