Are you starting to get more of an idea of what OECMs are and how they differ from protected areas?
Amber Himes-Cornell
01:14:21
Thank you to all of the presenters. I'd like to ask which countries in the region have started working on identifying OECMs. As Imen said, at FAO we are organizing regional workshops to help countries move through the process when it comes to area-based fisheries management measures. We would be interested in helping any country that would like technical assistance in this process.

What is the value/benefit of recognizing an area as an OECM?

How do the Barcelona/Helsinki Conventions differ from the Cartagena Convention and what can we learn from them to improve collective management of the Caribbean region?

Are you starting to think about what kind of areas could be OECMs is your country?
Amber Himes-Cornell
01:27:08
What challenges or barriers do you see in this region regarding the identification of OECMs?

In Antigua some of the local grassroots community groups are developing community conservation areas where biodiversity values such as -saving pollinators through planting flowers, plants and fruit trees, and this is linked to their culture, and history.

Here is a paper that looks at opportunities and challenges of the OECM framework in the context of community conservation: https://parksjournal.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/PARKS-23.2-Jonas-et-al-10.2305IUCN.CH_.2017.PARKS-23-2HDJ.en_-2.pdf

Thank you Harry, Clara and Imen for the responses!
Raynaldo Phillips

are there any cases of application of this "new framework" to PA boundary management? PA corridor management?
Amber Himes-Cornell
01:53:20
Thanks Harry, FAO is also doing this with countries for fisheries areas.

Thank you to all of the presenters and to BIOPAMA. This webinar has provided useful and interesting food for thought as we consider/ look towards OECMs in Guyana

Thanks Raynaldo
Ryan Abraham

Should governments look into providing subsidies to private land owners to implement OECM's?
Harry Jonas
01:59:27
Ryan - it’s a good idea, and PES schemes may also incentivise/support conservation
