Natural resource management
OACM provides institutions within the governments with new ways of managing national natural water resources both inland and in coastal areas with cost-effective methods that are already used by some of the OACM members.
The OACM affiliate office structured within the government institutions simplifies the development of new regulations and procedures for the natural resource management and more effective administration in charge of the operative part.
The OACM’s global governance in the field and aspects of natural resource management strives to unify an implementable system that can support the governments worldwide with cost-effective and efficient methods. OACM is closely collaborating with its members to develop from previous experience new innovative and modern solutions that not only can be focused on management but on implementing more sustainable long term effective financial models.
CSMA management by the government stakeholders is one of the main OACM affiliate office's responsibilities to obtain the high quality warranty for clean oceans, lakes and rivers. Management of CSMA areas requires manpower which is educated and provided by OACM and in collaboration with domestic and local residents. Annual maintenance is done by two separate teams: the administration team within the OACM government affiliate’s office and the operation part consisting of the White Flag divers, inspectors and surface personnel.
The management of the CSMA annual inspection and cleaning is time and resource consuming and the technical procedures for each of those CSMA places have their own time table.
The time and inspection of CSMA is dependent on local weather conditions, ocean currents, and level of pollution threat by domestic or residential inhabitants.
