New program area development

GBMF retained CEA to support the development of a new program area aimed at improving the sustainability of key globally traded seafood commodities. CEA seconded one of our Senior Associates to join GBMF’s marine conservation team and to support staff in their strategic planning efforts. The new strategy aims to create large-scale change by using the seafood market as a powerful force for improving fishing and fish-farming management practices. CEA mapped current philanthropic and NGO investments in the space, conducted extensive research, interviewed experts, and synthesized large amounts of complex information. CEA helped to identify the best opportunities for philanthropic investment, worked with staff to implement a portfolio of pilot grants, and developed materials to communicate the strategy to the foundation board and other external audiences. Since then, CEA has helped to facilitate gatherings of the Initiative.
