Project Summary:
This award will be utilised to develop a strategic research programme to deliver answers to key questions for strengthening management and conservation benefits from BIOT’s management framework in the context of a marine protected area (MPA) with or without fishing. It will build linkages amongst organisations involved in fishing and those with expertise in conservation and research. It will engage key institutions in BIOT’s neighbouring countries affected by the new management framework. This will be achieved through: establishing advisory and working groups; reviewing information on conservation and management, particularly in the context of pelagic systems; identifying key uncertainties using a Delphi approach that will inform a subsequent workshop to fully develop and prioritise feasible ideas; developing a full project proposal for submission to the next Darwin Initiative round.
