Capacity building of the Beach Management Unit (BMU)* in the village of Boma Subutuni, Tanga is well underway.
Boma Subutuni are the 7th village in our project with partners Blue Ventures, the 17th village engaged in community-led temporary closures with Mwambao.
To be effective, the committees responsible for decisions need to be aware of their rights and responsibilities and have the skills and knowledge to make informed decisions. Mwambao focuses on building their capacity in areas key to enable them to make choices about marine resources, while representing and considering the whole community.
*BMU: village committee responsible for management decisions surrounding marine resources.
