Together with the Nairobi Convention Secretariat, the Western Indian Ocean Marine Science Association (WIOMSA) and GIZ, the Collective Leadership Institute (CLI) is part of a Support Team helping to build collective leadership capacity for a participatory Regional Ocean Governance Strategy (ROGS) development process. Several meetings convening and engaging a diverse and talented multi-stakeholder ROGS Task Force from across the region, have led us to our first Leading Collectively Workshop coming up on 7-8 and 14-15 September!
The purpose of this workshop will be to help enliven the participatory process for the development of the strategy, with these goals:
- To learn and apply the Collective Leadership Compass within Cluster Teams to conduct baseline assessments of emerging Collaboration Ecosystems around priority ocean governance sectors
- To learn and apply the Dialogic Change Model within Cluster Teams to co-design an initial engagement and consultation approach for key actors on priority ocean governance sectors
- To build further trust and create further resonance for collaboration within the ROGS Task Force
The ROGS Task Force is organized into three Cluster Teams, each focused on different and cross-cutting ocean governance priorities. These are the Sustainable Blue Economy and Maritime Security Cluster, the Environment and Natural Resources Cluster, and finally, the Science and Knowledge Cluster.
