Project Summary:
The outcome of this project is the increased capacity of Kenyan coastal communities to effectively manage eight community-managed closures (tengefu). Establishing participatory processes and developing and testing adaptive management plans will build the capacity of communities to protect and benefit from the biodiversity on which they depend (through the restoration of coral reefs and associated species), and improve their livelihoods and quality of life (through greater food security and income). We expect that increased participation in management, networking and outreach will also improve social organization, resulting in communities that are able to effectively negotiate and resolve conflict over shared resources.
