The Network provides information and resources on locally-managed marine areas (LMMAs) and community-based adaptive management (CBAM), and training in project design, monitoring, data management and analysis, fundraising, communications and more. Project teams’ aims may vary – from improving local fishery resources (communities) to protecting coral reef biodiversity (conservation organizations) – but we all share at least one goal: a desire to learn how to improve our efforts. Whatever the motivation, we all share knowledge and experiences – through cross-site visits, country or regional meetings, workshops and trainings, printed materials and videos, and one-on-one – to help improve marine management activities and increase conservation impact.
