Meet our 2019 Cohort!

MAR Leadership 2018 Cohort
MAR Leadership 2018 Cohort

We are excited to introduce you to the 2019 Cohort comprised of a total of 14 fellows from the four MAR countries in five teams (one from Belize, one from Guatemala, two from Honduras and one from Mexico).

In this fantastic group of innovators, three fellows come from government, two from academic institutions, six from civil society organizations, and three from the private sector. 71% percent are women, and 29% are men. 

MAR-L has heavily invested in supporting leaders committed to improving fisheries in the region. Therefore, and with the understanding that the less ecologically degraded a reef ecosystem is, the more resilient and productive it is, we strive to scale up and launch successful projects that promote sustainable fisheries and sustainable community development with a gender perspective along the MAR.

The 2019 cohort leaders will design and implement the following six projects on sustainable fisheries and community development in the four MAR countries: 

  1. Biological and socioeconomic characterization of the Manjua fishery (family: Engraulidae) in the Caribbean of Guatemala
  2. For a fishery without leaving traces in the Bay Islands National Marine Park 
  3. Tools for the transition to territorial rights of use in fisheries in the Tela
  4. Turneffe Case Study to Create an Adaptive Lobster Fishery Management Model in Belize
  5. Design of a community monitoring program for a sustainable elasmobranch fishery in the North of Quintana Roo.

The MAR-L Program will provide 2019 Leaders an opportunity to gain real-world, hands-on experience and develop personal, professional, and environmental conservation leadership skills. These skills will enable Leaders to be-come frontrunners in protecting the Mesoamerican Reef and associated marine ecosystems and lead efforts to conserve, protect, and restore marine ecosystems in their communities, countries and across the region.

The training cycle of the 2019 cohort includes:
- A two-week workshop (15 days total, including travel time) will take place on September 14 - 30, 2019 in Quintana Roo, Mexico. During this workshop, Leaders will be trained by international experts on sustain-able fisheries management, marine reserves, climate change, fisheries science and management, blue econ-omy, community development successful models, public policy advocacy, storytelling, resource mobiliza-tion, negotiation and conflict resolution, personal development and leadership styles.
- Four webinars of two hours each on topics of interest to the cohort members.
- A 4-day trip to Baja California Sur during the first half of 2020 (dates to be confirmed) to participate at the Marine and Coastal Conservation Exchange between the Gulf of California region and the MAR
- Networking opportunities with leaders of other cohorts.

Thank you for your support!
