Charlie Gough

Helps communities in Madagascar understand their conservation outcomes through monitoring and evaluation.

Charlie is the Global Technical Advisor for Fisheries Management and Conservation at Blue Ventures and a PhD student at the University of Exeter. Now based in Bristol (UK) she spent a decade living and working in southwest Madagascar, where she saw how the lack of information on the status of marine resources undermines local and national efforts to manage and conserve them.

Charlie has led the development of community-based data collection and data visualisation systems within Blue Ventures. These systems are now being used by communities across twelve countries to guide local marine resource management decisions and empower local leaders to advocate for wider policy changes that will help to sustain their fisheries.
