  • Description:
    "The MBMPA Stakeholder Committee was formed in 2009 to assist with decision making and implementation of the management plan (Robie 2010) but has not been formalized yet as there is no provision for this Committee in the MPA legislation. This Committee has since been acting as an advisory committee to the Fisheries Division for the day-to-day operation of the MPA...However, it was evident that training capacity was needed to address various concerns by the members on the functioning of the committee. Issues were raised frequently on communication protocols and meetings outcomes. Some members were not familiar with the MBMPA management plan and the process of implementing the plan. Furthermore, some members were not clear about their roles and responsibilities as well as those of other members. This was affecting the management committee morale and active voluntary participation especially by private sector...To address these issues a follow-up training on board effectiveness was conducted in November 2011 with members to strengthen the management of MBMPA committee. After the board training, MBMPA members and the MPA management team recognised the need to further strengthen and develop the management committee into the MBMPA Management Board to allow members to take more direct responsibility in carrying out the day-to-day management of the MPA through co-management agreements. Secondly to align the MBMPA Stakeholder Committee with the National MPA management plans and operations using the Sandy Island Oyster Bed MPA Board arrangement as an example. Finally the long-term vision of the formation of the board is to explore institutional arrangements and creative ways in funding strategies that builds resilience into protecting financial resources for site base MPA management"--Introduction.
