PADDLE Workshop “Community Knowledge and Marine Spatial Planning”

« Back to Events
Date: 
5 February, 2018 - 7 February, 2018
Location: 
Mindelo, Cape Verde

This workshop will allow participants to have a global presentation of MSP history and first implementation. The scientific community in Cape Verde and in Africa has had little access to MSP practices and this workshop will be an occasion to share experiences on this matter. The place and role of local communities will be underlined. During the second day, a special session will be organized about the challenges of MSP for Africa. The Cape Verdean marine strategy – strongly linked to Blue Growth issues - will be also presented. During the last day, all participants will be invited to participate to an exercise showing concretely the role of community into building marine spatial planning practices. This workshop is organised jointly by University of Azores, the National Institute for the Development of Fisheries of Cabo Verde and UNESCO's Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC).
