FileTowards an ecosystem-based management (EBM) of LME during Climate Change by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Aug 27, 2014 09:57 AM
The approach to the assessment and management of Large Marine Ecosystems(LMEs) has been the subject of a series of seminal symposium convened at the annual meetings of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Since 1995, a five module approach to ecosystem- based management(EBM) of LMEs has been the focus of 110 economically developing countries around the globe engaged in 22 LMEs. A sum of $3.1 billion in financial assistance from the Global Environment Facility and the World Bank has been provided to support this global movement towards recovery and sustainability of LME goods and services in partnership with several OECD countries, five UN agencies, and two NGOs.
FileReport from the Strategic planning meeting for the Global Socioeconomic Monitoring Initiative for Coastal Management by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Aug 27, 2014 10:24 AM
The Global Socioeconomic Monitoring Initiative (SocMon/SEM Pasifika) has been in existence for over ten years. For any organization including a network of volunteers such as this initiative, it was felt that the time was right for taking a moment for introspection, reflecting on the past, examining the present realities and planning for the future. With this in mind, and based on the results from a survey of SocMon regional coordinators, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency’s (NOAA) Coral Reef Conservation Program, GCRMN, Reef Rainforest Fund and implementing partner University of the West Indies Centre for Resource Management and Environmental Studies (CERMES) facilitated a meeting of SocMon Regional Coordinators and other partners that was held at NOAA’s Headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA.
FileLME Governance - Project Document by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Jul 29, 2014 02:09 PM

File2012 Paper on Gender and Water on the Road to Rio1 by Damaris Waigwa — last modified Jul 29, 2014 02:02 PM
This paper presented an overview of existing institutional frameworks for the incorporation of gender mainstreaming in water management policies, particularly in the context of the Earth Summit. Rio+20 must build on these frameworks and incorporate existing commitments within the frameworks of action that will be adopted at the Conference. Their efficacy needs to be complemented by engendered, accountable and transparent institutional frameworks with sufficient capacity to manage water resources. However, to date, there has been little attention to gender concerns in the water governance structures or processes. The constraint of the lack of political will to mainstreaming gender in water institutions need to be challenged and remedied
