Making Marine Ecosystem Services Matter by Nicola Beaumont of Plymouth
Marine Laboratory, Esther Wolfs of Wolfs Company, and Samir Rosado of the
Belize Coastal Zone Management Authority and Institute. Blue Solutions
provides a global knowledge network and capacity development platform to
collate, share, and generate solutions for effective management and
equitable governance of our planetâs marine and coastal living spaces, and
to develop capacity for the ocean community on the initiativeâs priority
topics. For this webinar, presenters will showcase how marine ecosystem
service information can be used in conservation and sustainable development
decision making. Two Blue Solutions case studies will be featured:
[3]âNatureâs contribution to the economyâ in Bonaire and [4]âMapping and
valuing ecosystem services for integrated managementâ in Belize. The webinar
will last 75 minutes with extensive time for question and answer with the
presenters. About the webinar series: Blue Solutions hosts the marine and
coastal portal of the PANORAMA platform â Solutions for a Healthy Planet.
This is the first of five PANORAMA webinars that will be hosted by Blue
Solutions. Visit us at [5]http://www.bluesolutions.info and
[6]www.panorama.solutions. This webinar is also co-sponsored by MPA News,
MEAM, OpenChannels, and the EBM Tools Network (co-coordinated by NatureServe
and [7]OpenChannels.org). Register for the webinar at

Crowdsourcing small-scale fisheries data: A global initiative by Rodolphe
Devillers and David Bishop of Memorial University of Newfoundland. The
Information System on Small-scale Fisheries (ISSF) is a web portal that is
used to integrate, summarize, and communicate information on small-scale
fisheries (SSF) globally. Based on a crowdsourcing approach, the data are
all freely accessible, helping the global SSF community to better qualify
and quantify SSF and their importance. The system provides diverse
information, including people and organizations involved in this field,
publications, and detailed profiles of SSF at specific locations. The system
allows users to access data as a map or a table, generate reports, and
export data for further analyses. ISSF was developed as part of the
international project "Too Big to Ignoreâ. Access the portal at

(co-coordinated by NatureServe and [10]OpenChannels.org) and MEAM. Register

Protecting Our Marine Treasures: Sustainable Finance Options for US Marine
Protected Areas by Brian Baird of The Bay Institute and Aquarium of the Bay
and Martha Honey of the Center for Responsible Travel. MPAs require
sustainable long-term funding for designation and management â including for
education, outreach, monitoring, research, policy development, and
enforcement. Recommendations from a new report produced by the US Marine
Protected Areas Federal Advisory Committee will be discussed, along with a
wide-range of approaches for obtaining external funding, important
guidelines for success, and potential sources of external financing. Webinar
co-sponsored by the NOAA National MPA Center, MPA News, and the EBM Tools
Network (co-coordinated by NatureServe and [12]OpenChannels.org). Register

Debt Conversions to Finance Action on the Blue Economy for Small Island
Developing States by Robert Weary of The Nature Conservancy. Small Island
Developing States (SIDS) are highly vulnerable to climate change. However,
extremely high public debt ratios make it difficult for these countries to
invest in modifying infrastructure and improving coastal and flood
protection. The goal of our work is twofold: 1) to facilitate the
transaction of donations and investments for climate change adaptation as
well as biodiversity conservation in the marine realm and 2) provide highly
indebted countries with an innovative financial tool to restructure their
debt and allow for debt relief as well as secure capital flows for
investments into climate change adaption activities. Protecting the âblue
economyâ of island states will ultimately reduce vulnerability of both
marine ecosystems and the economy as a whole (e.g., through sustained
fishing grounds and tourism). And debt conversions allow national
governments to free capital streams and direct them into climate adaptation
and marine conservation activities that ultimately will restore natural and
human resilience to threats of climate change. Join us on this webinar to
learn more about relevant debt conversions including how they are financed,
managed, utilized, and retired. Learn more about a relevant swap for the

Impact Investing to Fund Marine Conservation by Kelly Wachowicz of Catch
Invest. There has been a lot of talk about impact investing as a source of
funding for marine conservation priorities. What is impact investing? How
does it work, and what can managers do to attract impact investors to fund
their projects? Join us for a webinar with Kelly Wachowicz, Managing Partner
of Catch Invest, an impact investing firm supporting fishermen,
conservation, and communities. Kelly will talk about investing to support
sustainable fisheries and fisheries transitions and share several case
studies that highlight some of the opportunities and challenges with this
emerging funding tool. Learn more about impact investing for marine
ecosystems and communities at

Implications of spatial connectivity and climate change for the design and
application of marine protected areas by Mark Carr of the University of
California, Santa Cruz. The US Marine Protected Area (MPA) Federal Advisory
Committee (FAC) has a Connectivity Subcommittee charged with understanding
how knowledge about ecological spatial connectivity and climate climate
change can be incorporated into the design, use, and management of effective
MPAs and MPA networks. The committee has summarized the current scientific
understanding of: 1) different types and scales of connectivity and their
ecological implications, 2) how connectivity processes create ecological
linkages among marine areas, populations, communities, and ecosystems, and
3) how connectivity impacts conservation outcomes in MPAs. This webinar will
summarize the work of the FAC on the implications of spatial ecological
connectivity for the design and application of MPAs in a changing ocean.
This work forms the basis of the FAC's recommendations to the US Secretaries
of Commerce and the Interior for future US MPA management and policy.
Webinar co-sponsored by the NOAA National MPA Center, MPA News, and the EBM
Tools Network (co-coordinated by NatureServe and [21]OpenChannels.org).
