Improved conservation of terrestrial and marine seascapes and their watersheds, wetlands, marine habitats, fisheries and community production practices will enhance the ecological value of the respective ecosystems for community benefits. Implementation of strategies and mainstreaming of sustainable resource use via the community organizations will result into sustainable practices in agriculture, fisheries, marine resource use, tourism and value chain products and services.
