Interactive online conversations

Sharing experiences from the front lines of community-led marine conservation

Join us for a series of interactive online conversations, called Toko telo: Sharing experiences to foster better community-led conservation.

The events each include a facilitated conversation with an international panel in English, followed by interactive workshops.

We are excited to announce a series of Toko Telo online conversations exploring the successes and challenges of community-led fisheries management and conservation.

We are looking for participants and contributors to the series so please contact us if you have relevant experience to share.

Toko telo

MAHAMASA-NAHANDRO​

‘Toko telo mahamasa-nahandro’ is a Malagasy proverb describing how when cooking without a stove you need to bring three rocks together to hold a pot above a fire. The saying is understood to mean that in order to achieve great things you need to work together, taking different ideas from multiple people to make something that works well.

This concept is the inspiration for our new series of online interactive discussions championing diverse voices, perspectives and sparking creative solutions for the future of community-led marine conservation.

Meet the panel

The panel discussion will be chaired by Christopher Giordano, Technical Advisor – Fisheries Value Chains and Markets, Blue Ventures.

Format

This event will consist of two parts: a forty-five minute panel discussion with live questions to the panel in English, followed by a forty-five minute break out discussion in English, Spanish and French (indicate preferred language when registering for the event).

Session objectives

As part of the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture, this event will highlight the experience of small-scale fishers who have engaged in Fishery Improvement Projects (FIPs) and the economic or environmental outcomes they experienced as well as current trends within FIPs and global certification and ratings schemes to include social responsibility.

Focusing on practitioner experiences, the panellists will discuss how their FIPs or value chain work has affected food and nutrition security, financial access of fishers and fish workers, and value chain actor participation in fisheries governance. These experiences will inform breakout sessions which review how social and human rights approaches used by FIPs might be different between small scale fisheries and industrialised, large-scale fisheries.

This event will consist of two parts: a forty-five minute panel discussion with live questions to the panel in English, followed by a forty-five minute break out discussion in English and French (indicate preferred language when registering for the event).

To mark the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture, this event will showcase how the recently UK Government funded ASPIRE project worked towards increasing the adaptive capacity of coastal communities and small-scale fishers to climate change. The event will bring together organisations that have collaborated on the ASPIRE project, which aimed to build community resilience to climate change by strengthening the integration of sexual and reproductive health services with community-based conservation activities. This will be a unique opportunity to hear insights from actors in both conservation and sexual reproductive health sectors, as well as from experts in human-centred design.

In this session we will discuss and explore: 

  1. The principles and benefits of cross-sectoral, health-environment programming and how this can be applied in coastal communities.
  2. Innovations developed under the ASPIRE project to strengthen community resilience to climate change through improving sexual and reproductive health and rights, and
  3. The principles of effective collaboration between partners from different sectors, and how HCD has supported the process.
