In 2015 started the consultations among all MIHARI members, to establish a clear and functioning structure. There are 45 fishers who are elected to be representatives of their region, and who meet regionally or nationally every year. They also have opportunities during these events to approach directly government officials, which has had a great impact.

Enabling factors

  • Existence of community leaders who were motivated and engaged to contribute to MIHARI governance.
  • Fishers trainings since the creation of MIHARI, which allowed the emergence of leaders.

Lessons learned

It was important to have a consultative process to legitimate the elected members of the national LMMA board.
