THE CONCEPT OF LOCAL MARINE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT HAS STRONGLY DEVELOPED THE MADAGASCAR COASTS DURING THE LAST DECADE

MIHARI is the national network of local communities managing marine resources in Madagascar. It was established in 2012 and more than 200 communities have joined it since.

The mission of the network is to facilitate exchanges between fishing communities in Madagascar. Indeed, they are isolated from one another.

The MIHARI network assists managers of marine protected areas by:

Ensuring the strengthening of the voices of fishermen

Sharing best practices

Strengthening local leadership

Achieving financial sustainability

Among the activities to remedy this isolation, the network organizes the national and regional fora. Since its creation, nine regional and four national forums have been held, the last of which was held in Fort-Dauphin, in southern Madagascar last July.
