The Forum / How it works

 

The Forum is the result of volunteer work of non-governmental organizations of a national, regional and international nature. There are two categories of membership. The active members are those who give an annual fee in order to finance the Forum's actions. The associated members have similar level of engagement without paying annual fees. A professional coordinator is in charge of implementing the agreed decisions and taking care of administration. The members meet regularly in plenary meetings, in which other individuals and organizations can assist as observers. The Forum in plenary elects periodically the members of the Steering Group among the active organizations. The Steering Group guides the activities of the Forum and supervises the Coordinator on behalf of all its members in the inter-session periods. The Forum has also a number of active working-groups that promote specific projects and products.

Primer curso sobre Áreas Marinas Protegidas del Cono Sur

Nuevas Áreas Marinas Protegidas (AMP) son creadas en la región y el mundo, pero su figura no resulta suficiente para preservar los valores naturales del mar. Hoy, la implementación efectiva de esta herramienta es débil. Su éxito depende, en gran medida, del fortalecimiento de las instituciones a cargo de su gestión, con recursos humanos disponibles y capacitados.
