The Caribbean Natural Resources Institute (CANARI) is asking for your help to identify cases of innovation and best practice by Caribbean civil society on approaches for marine and coastal governance and management.

Under the Powering Innovations in Civil Society and Enterprises for Sustainability in the Caribbean (PISCES) project, CANARI will document and publish at least 8 case studies and share them throughout the region, especially among fisherfolk organisations (FFOs), community-based organisations (CBOs) and non-governmental organisations (NGOs).

CANARI will give full recognition to the organisations that implemented the best practice activities and will credit all material as such.

Please go here to complete a short form to submit your recommended case. Note that you will need to fill out a separate form for each case. This call is open only until July 17th so don’t delay!
