The Joint WMO-IOC Technical Commission for Oceanography and Marine Meteorology


18th Annual Large Marine Ecosystem Meeting

6 - 8 December 2016, Paris, France

The primary objective of the Annual meeting is to provide global forum for GEF-funded marine and coastal leaders and institutions, aimed at sharing experiences and lessons with respect to ecosystem-based governance. The LME Annual meeting contributes to the development of the LME Partnership by engaging marine, coastal, biodiversity and coastal climate change adaptation project leaders in meeting those objectives, in accordance with the recently established GEF: LME Learn project. More specifically, the meeting aims at:

- Fostering a mutually supportive global network of leaders and institutions engaged in marine and coastal ecosystem based management by providing a forum for project (i.e. LME, ICM, MPA, others) leaders to discuss experiences and lessons learned;

- Mobilizing knowledge resources, new scientific applications and tools to support project implementation and organizational action related to priority knowledge topics;

- Reviewing marine and coastal project progress in regions, disseminating best practices among projects, and discuss emerging issues requiring common responses;

- And sharing lessons learned from existing efforts with regard to the LME Governance project priorities (i.e. regional networks, capacity building training and twinning) and identify future priorities to help guide the LME: LEARN Project.
