World Wildlife Fund Canada
Science and stakeholder participation in resource management
World Wildlife Fund Canada (WWF-Canada) is using this grant to foster relationships with key stakeholders in the northern region of British Columbia’s Pacific North Coast Integrated Management Area (PNCIMA) process. WWF-Canada is also working to build the capacity for an objective marine science organization that provides a hub of marine ecosystem knowledge in British Columbia, the Pacific Marine Analysis and Research Association (PacMARA). Outcomes for this grant include regional stakeholder support and participation in the PNCIMA process, with PacMARA elevated to an independent, accessible, and multi-stakeholder science organization.
