“The LMMA process is not just about conservation. LMMA work strengthens our family and clan ties within the village. The process has really brought the community together when it hadn’t been before… when LMMA Network came along, it strengthened our ties and enabled us to work together again.”

Samuela Tuidravu, Qoliqoli Macuata Cokavata Committee Secretary, Fiji

“I believe if we have LMMAs in each and every coastal area, we can be assured of our survival, we can have food security in our villages.”

Rosie Egea, Batangas Muncipal Agriculturist Local Government Unit, Lobo, Philippines

“There were some doubts as to whether this would work, but as we began to do biological monitoring surveys and come up with results, people developed interest and support for the LMMA work.”

Apolosi Silaca, Tovata Confederacy Representative, Fiji
