Women leaders representing six countries in Coral Triangle region have gathered in Bali from October 22 to 26, 2018 one week ahead of the Our Ocean Conference 2018 to shine the spotlight on how they are taking the lead in marine conservation projects in the world’s epicenter of marine biodiversity.
The women are part of Coral Triangle Initiative on Coral Reefs, Fisheries and Food Security (CTI-CFF) Women Leaders Forum (WLF), a peer-learning network of women leaders from Indonesia, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Solomon Islands, and Timor-Leste. The network was launched in 2014 and now has around 200 members in the six countries.
“We believe that in order to have a larger impact in the community and in the environment, women have to be empowered to make active decisions and take leadership roles in managing our marine resources,” said Rili Djohani, Executive Director of Coral Triangle Center, one of the forum’s organizers.
The CTI-CFF Women Leaders Forum Intergenerational Leadership Learning Program is being implemented by CTC, the US Department of the Interior International Technical Assistance Program, in collaboration with CTI-CFF Regional Secretariat and CTI-CFF National Coordinating Committees and is funded by USAID.
