Building capacity

We will work collaboratively with government, industry, ENGOs, and other interested partners to improve our capacity to achieve the goals outlined in our Plan

In order for our Nations to be able to reach our authority, resource management, and economic goals we will need to significantly increase our institutional, human and capital capacity. Specifically, we will need to create institutions to govern resource use in our territories, capital to employ management members and to fund management and research activities, and educational opportunities to ready community members for employment opportunities in marine-related positions from governance and management to deck hands and Guardian Watchmen.
