CoopeSoliDar registers its commitment to The Ocean Conference!
A civil society organization based in Costa Rica, CoopeSoliDar also works in Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. Its commitment to The Ocean Conference is focused on SDG targets 14.2, 14.4, 14.5, 14.a and 14.b.
Founded in 2000, the self-managed social cooperative provides professional services to community groups, including providing support to decision-making processes at different levels, strategic planning, proposal preparation, workshop facilitation, development of management plans in protected areas with community participation, knowledge generation, community use of biodiversity, legislative and policy advice, as well as publication of environmental materials.
Its approach includes strengthening the recognition of traditional knowledge as a key element in generating marine information that promotes the sustainable use of marine resources at the local level; building the capacities of fisher leaders (women and men) regarding the Voluntary Guidelines for securing sustainable small-scale fisheries in the context of food security and poverty eradication, and promoting national and regional policy changes towards the implementation of the guidelines by strengthening the voices of local fishers communities.
