Organisation overview
Blue Ventures develops locally-led approaches to marine management that benefit people and
nature alike. By listening and responding to basic needs, our models are designed to catalyse and
sustain marine conservation, unlocking the potential of coastal communities to manage their
resources. We work in places where the ocean is vital to local cultures and economies, and are
committed to advancing the rights of small-scale fishers throughout the coastal tropics.
PHE is a holistic approach to sustainable development, so-called because of the way that it reflects
the connections between people, their health and the environment: integrating community health
promotion and services with local natural resource management, alternative livelihoods and
biodiversity conservation initiatives. Blue Ventures has been implementing an award-winning PHE
programme in Madagascar since 2007, encompassing community health services and local marine
resource management efforts.
In 2014 we helped to establish the Madagascar PHE Network with the aim of facilitating the
development of cross-sector PHE partnerships between health and environmental organisations
working across the country, and building their capacity to implement PHE initiatives. In 2016 we
started to support uptake of this holistic PHE approach by partners in Mozambique, and we have
since expanded this partner support work to Tanzania, Kenya and Indonesia.
