Okeanos Vanuatu was part an innovative workshop called ‘Santo Sunset Environmental Network’ from April 8th to 12th, 2018, on West Coast Santo.
The chiefs and people of West Coast Santo have established the conservation project called the West Coast Santo “Sunset” Environment Network in 2017, a commitment by all of the remote villages along Santo’s rugged West Coast to manage and protect natural resources for sustainable and resilient livelihoods.
Okeanos Vanuatu participates in the Santo Sunset Environmental Network with partners from GIZ, Climate Change Vanuatu, IUCN, ausAID, and more on a mission to create the largest community conservation area in Vanuatu! https://t.co/CheWv5ydxp
