Darwin Plus Supports Marine Environment Project
Montserrat has received funding from the Darwin Plus for a marine conservation project.
The “Improving Sustainability of Marine Management on Montserrat” project enables the Government of Montserrat to improve the management of the marine environment and key marine resources by strengthening the evidence base, local capacity and management tools to inform the sustainable development of the island’s marine based economy.
The project also aims to educate the younger generation on marine issues relevant to Montserrat to ensure the future sustainability of the island’s marine environment.
A meeting with the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) Scientists will be held here from Monday June 4, 2018.
The June 4th to the 5th will include components of the project with direct emphasis on Effective Decision Making in regards to Environmental Impact Assessments, Habitat Mapping and Education.
The Meeting will see scientists such as Rachel Mulholland, Alex Callaway, Jo Smith, Charlotte Jennings and Joana Torres.
The Meeting is being held by the Department of Agriculture.
