In the second session, stakeholders shared local experiences on the advantages and disadvantages of LMMA/MPA, and proposed effective management of LMMA / MPA with increased cooperation in the Central region.

Mr. Le Vinh Thuan presented experience on management of Cu Lao Cham MPA based on EAFM while sharing experiences with representatives of Cu Lao Cham MPA.Cu Lao Cham belongs to Hoi An City, Quang Nam Province which has natural marine resources, forest resources, and rich and diverse human resources that are suitable for marine and tourism development. During the development process, Cu Lao Cham MPA adopted ecosystem-based fisheries management, and achieved an enhanced awareness of natural resources and environment protection, attracting the participation and consensus of the community for conservation.

Mr. Phan Tuan, Head of Quy Nhon Economic Division and a representative of the Quy Nhon LMMA area, shared about Quy Nhon’s management experience of LMMA. With the advantage of the support of the authorities, the active participation of the community, and the funding support from the project programs, Quy Nhon has built a pilot model of community management in a small area of Hon Kho.  Co-management in the Hon Kho area has protected corals and marine ecosystems by improving people’s skills of aquatic resources, and thus the environment has been improved. Quy Nhon is also developing a co-management plan at Bai Dua under the 2017 Fisheries Law.

A representative of the Ly Son MPA Management Board, Mr. Huynh Ngoc Dung – Deputy Director presented the results achieved during the management process. Communication has been taken seriously by the Management Board, followed by patrols, control and supervision around the marine protected area, which plays an important role in dealing with illegal seafood violations. The Management Board has implemented international cooperation activities, research activities to build models, policies, and scientific research, and other activities such as implementing a package of shipbuilding patrol vessels.

At the end of the workshop, the executive board discussed the plan to increase the cooperation between the Central Region LMMA / MPA, and the participants discussed their specific ideas and experiences in each locality. Specifically, there is a need to strengthen experience exchanges between localities and MPAs, and to implement activities of exchanging knowledge and information to support activities among localities.
