For the week of 14 December 2015
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Join us on Wednesday, 20 January for a webinar on How to Improve Marine Conservation Research in Small Island States. This webinar will provide an overview of the current state of practice among a number of US federal programs employing EBM approaches in the ocean, coastal zone, and the Great Lakes. The National Ocean Policy EBM-Subgroup recently conducted a study using social network analysis to explore similarities among programs in different topic areas (e.g., type of audience, partners, training, EBM best management practices and principles). The study found substantial differences in perceived and effective performances across programs, with Management programs showing a higher level of integration of EBM approaches than Non-Management programs.

Thank you for being a part of the OpenChannels Community,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager, and the rest of the OpenChannels Team
