This legal instrument was co-developed between 2020 and 2022 with the technical and financial support of WCS-Mozambique through grants from various donors, such as The Tiffany & Co Foundation, the Blue Action Fund, Ocean’s 5, the Bloomberg Philanthropies and the MPA Fund.
This instrument, specific to the management of coral reefs, is the first of its kind for the country and is a game-changer. The strategy will bring a completely new perspective and will guide the conservation of coral reefs in Mozambique for the next 10 years.
