New partnership between Blue Ventures and KFF in Timor-Leste

Birgit Hermann, country director of Blue Ventures in Timor-Leste, is proud to celebrate the start of a new partnership with Konservasaun Flora no Fauna (KFF)!

The purpose of this collaboration is to reinforce the sustainable management of fisheries and the whole ecosystem (coral reefs, seagrass and mangrove habitats), the improvement of food security, the community resilience to climate shocks, and people’s ability to adapt.

With the Kiwa Initiative’s funding, 10 communities in Timor-Leste will be able to strengthen their resilience to the effects of climate change by better protecting ecosystems, managing fisheries, and diversifying livelihoods. 

"As an organisation, we’re working to create a world where small-scale fishers have bigger catches, better livelihoods and improved food security, and where healthy oceans teem with life for generations to come. I believe that customary practices and nature-based solutions benefitting people and nature alike are the key to making this vision a reality. As we move forwards with our pacific island neighbours I have a renewed sense of purpose that great things can come from locally led initiatives connected at scale, " states Birgit.
