Blue Ventures and local conservation NGO, Konservasaun Flora no Fauna (KFF) presented the project to the Secretary of State for the Environment in Dili. Attendees included the Director General, Mr. João Soares, National Director of Biodiversity, Mr. Rui Pires, National Director of Pollution Control, Mr. Nelson Madeira, representatives from National Designated Authority, representative from Carbon Farming Programme as well as the Regional Director Asia-Pacific of Blue Ventures, Steve Box.

“We are supportive of Blue Ventures and KFF’s new partnership in this project. This marks a new era of cooperation between Blue Ventures and the Secretary of State for the Environment”, said Mr. João Soares, the Director General of Secretary of State for the Environment.

The project aims at elevating communities to establish and monitor a locally managed marine area (LMMA) including coral reef and seagrass habitats, and implement ecologically sustainable fishing measures within the respective habitats.

The partnership with KFF will expand Blue Ventures’ ecological monitoring programme in Timor-Leste, its global strategic focus on blue carbon, and further scale up the network of peer-to-peer knowledge exchange between coastal communities.
