Enabling factors

  • Meetings co-lead by the University Eduardo Mondlane and partner NGOs, to brainstorm with communities on the importance of seagrass and the threats to this ecosystem
  • The principle of voluntarism is an important prerequisite to be part of an association
  • The association charter was elaborated in a consultative manner, and its representatives were elected by the community members.

Lessons learned

  • The association created in fact a reference community group, that has deep local knowledge on seagrass and their related other resources
  • Discussions that drive thorough reflections on the issues related to seagrass but also their uniqueness, unfold the need to protect and manage this ecosystem, as well as becoming a member of the association
  • Several meetings were needed, to introduce and document strengths, weaknesses and opportunities to start a seagrass management agenda.
