More corals=More fish: Strengthening Communication of Methods and Results of Over a Decade of Reef Replenishment Work at Laughing Bird Caye National Park, Locally and Regionally
The activities proposed here compliment previous dissemination work, and build on current and on-going research and fieldwork. The Placencia peninsula is a prioritized community in the GEF SGP Country Programme Strategy, because it is rural, and the work is in Protected Areas and focuses on increasing and maintaining richness of species (biodiversity). The proposed activities here seek to meet the SGP OP6 components 6 and 7: Promoting social inclusion and Global reach for citizen based knowledge program. Specifically, this proposal’s objectives should meet SGP OP6 component 6.1 and 6.3, as past and on-going work includes youth and women, and a planned deliverable is a socio-economic report to capture this data 2013-2018. FoH has already established a training manual and videos for a three-day reef replenishment workshop with previous GEF funding, and a website housing this information with external funding (component 7.1). This proposal seeks to update and build on those accomplishments and take it a step further by meeting component/objective 7.2: South-south community innovation exchanges with reef restoration colleagues in Orcabessa bay, Jamaica.

Project Characteristics and Results
Inovative Financial Mechanisms
As described in the project activities, posters, coloring books and jigsaw puzzles will target youth (and others). Videos will be created, the website updated with new videos and new learning tools, and social media pages kept up to date. FoH has many community consultations in several locations each year; a minium of one a year plus an AGM in Placencia. FoH also attends national and regional workshops and conferences regularly, where knowledge is shared.
Notable Community Participation
As part of the coral restoration, FOH takes into consideration the efforts that youths invest in the protection of the Belize Barrier Reef. Youths will be engaged in the dissemination of work, and will be engaged in the building of awareness. Youths will also be engaged in the updating and maintaining of the FOH website, training and participating in the production of videos.
