This issue contains a number of articles summarizing experience and lessons learned from the first five years of the Sustainable Coastal Communities and Ecosystems (SUCCESS) Program. The SUCCESS Program is implemented by the Coastal Resources Center at the University of Rhode Island in partnership with the University of Hawaii Hilo and several regional and local partners. It is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) with matching contributions from implementing partners. The goal is to provide global leadership in integrated coastal management (ICM) in biologically significant areas through a participatory, issue-driven and results-oriented process.
 

Este documento contiene información del monitoreo realizado en los huertos familiares orgánicos de la Parroquia Bolívar. En este estudio se recopilan datos de la iniciativa del huerto de la comunidad, también del emprendimiento y manejo de los diferentes cultivos de cada una de las personas que hasta la actualidad mantienen su huerto.

"Si quieres ir a lugares nuevos tienes que recorrer caminos desconocidos "

Constituyendo un hito para un conjunto de procesos inter–territoriales iniciados cinco años atrás, la Representación de Puentes Internacionales (PI) reunió en julio de 2006 en la provincia de Córdoba (Argentina) a integrantes de distintos espacios de acción
colectiva impulsados por AVINA: los grupos Paraty, Forte, Amazónico–Patagónico, Purmamarca y de Líderes Articuladores; así como las redes Latinoamericana para la Acción y el Aprendizaje Colectivo en Manejo Costero Integrado, de Arte y Transformación
Social, y Rema de Brasil.

Los propósitos principales fueron reflexionar, individual y conjuntamente, sobre los factores que los originaron y sus principales aprendizajes, además de proponer recomendaciones para su accionar futuro y para otros grupos que surjan bajo esquemas
de trabajo similares.

Description

Marine environments support the livelihoods, economies, and quality of life for communities around the world. But growth of coastal populations and increasing demands on marine resources are putting the future of ocean and coastal resources at risk through impacts such as overfishing, wetland drainage, climate change, and pollution of coastal waters. Given these demands, it is vital to build capacity--the people, the institutions, and technology and tools--needed to manage ocean resources. Unfortunately, many capacity building efforts focus on specific projects rather than on capacity building as goal unto itself, resulting in activities that are not funded or sustained past the typically short project lifetime. This book finds that the most successful capacity-building efforts meet the needs of a specific locale or region based on periodic assessments and include plans to maintain and expand capacity after the project ends. The report recommends ways that governments and organizations can help strengthen marine protection and management capacity, including conducting periodic program assessments, making plans to sustain funding, and developing leadership and political will. The book was produced at the request of Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the President's Circle of the National Academies, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Science Foundation, the Marisla Foundation, and the Curtis and Edith Munson Foundation.

Informe especial del Grupo de Expertos sobre Aspectos Científicos de Protección Marino Ambiental (GESAMP). A partir de la experiencia de cuatro programas maduros de manejo costero (Chesapeake Bay, Gran barrera de arrecifes de Australia, Programa de Manejo de Recursos Costeros de Ecuador, Manejo Costero en Bolinao y el Golfo de Lingayen-Filipinas) correspondientes a escenarios geográficos y socioeconómicos diferentes identifica la manera en que la ciencia y los científicos pueden contribuir a la efectividad del Manejo Costero Integrado.
