MARGov Governancia colaborative de areas marinhas protegidas

The project MARGov considers as direct stakeholders, local communities and, in particular, the users of the Marine Park Professor Luiz Saldanha. Specifically these are the fishermen, the scuba diving, recreational fishing and nautical tourism practitioners, tour operators and local associations.

General objectives
* Empower actors for change for the sustainable governance of the Ocean, by the intensification of the eco-social dialog;
* Strengthen the social and human component for the management of marine protected areas promoting active participation of local communities;
* Structure a GIS for the integration of data to support the collaborative process and to become a database of information/knowledge to support the development of actions for long range management.

Specific objectives:

Engage in dialogue the key actors

Promote the strengthening of eco-social dialogue and active participation of local communities, encouraging interactive collaboration for co-management, reducing conflicts and enhancing long-term relationships;

Contribute to the resolution of conflicts, strengthening the constructive dialogue between stakeholders in the discussion of problems and seeking solutions.
