For the week of 16 November 2015
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Join us on Wednesday, 2 December for a webinar on the Ocean Prosperity Roadmap: Fisheries and Beyond with Chris Costello and Ray Hilborn. The Ocean Prosperity Roadmap: Fisheries and Beyond is a new collection of research designed to inform decision makers, including governments and investors, on effective ocean and coastal resource management strategies to maximize economic, conservation and societal benefits. The research demonstrates how governance and management reform can reduce poverty while achieving economic gains, increasing food production, replenishing fish and conserving ocean health for future generations. For more information and to register, please visit https://oct.to/OCWebinar66.
Also, I'm pleased to announce that we're launching a discussion list – the Ocean Planning Community listserv – for people on the front lines of marine spatial planning and ocean conservation. It's designed to help you and your peers share experience and good practices with one another: what worked, what didn't, what you learned. I'd be delighted for you to join. Signup and learn more about the list here.
Thank you for being a part of the OpenChannels Community,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager, and the rest of the OpenChannels Team
