For the week of 30 January 2017
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
The Marine Protected Areas Federal Advisory Committee has published a new report, Protecting Our Marine Treasures: Sustainable Finance Options for U.S. Marine Protected Areas. "In 2015, the Marine Protected Area Advisory Committee was charged with advising the Departments of Commerce and the Interior on opportunities to expand the use of external financing for [MPA] programs. This report focuses on a wide range of approaches to obtain external funding for MPAs. Although in-kind services are important, analysis of these services is beyond the scope of this report."
As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
