Madagascar’s coral reefs are some of the most diverse in the world

More than 250,000 people depend on Madagascar’s fisheries for their livelihoods

Locally Managed Marine Areas (LMMAs) are areas of ocean managed by communities, for communities, to help protect fisheries and safeguard marine biodiversity

The Government of Madagascar recently committed to tripling the country’s marine protected areas

Community management of marine resources is legally recognised by the Government of Madagascar

Over 10% of Madagascar’s coastal shelf is covered by Locally Managed Marine Areas (LMMAs) run by more than 150 communities
