Governing Marine Protected Areas: Getting the Balance Right

Governing Marine Protected Areas: Getting the Balance Right

Ratings: (0)|Views: 3 |Likes:
Whilst there is currently much guidance available on how to manage marine protected areas (MPAs), there is less guidance available that considers MPAs from a governance perspective. This perspective poses a key question how do we combine top-down, bottom-up and market approaches for reaching and implementing decisions in order to achieve effective and equitable MPAs? It is widely accepted that all three approaches are important, but how might they be combined in different MPA contexts?

The need to address this question has led to a new partnership among a group of governance experts and MPA planners and managers to initiate development of guidance on governing MPAs in seas under national jurisdiction. 20 MPA case study from around the world have been brought together and subjected to detailed analysis employing a new governance analysis framework, deconstructing the complexities of MPA governance employing 40 incentives from five categories.

This Technical Report describes the findings of this work. It is intended to provide a foundation for further discussion and learning, employing the governance analysis framework in different planning scenarios, to provide a preliminary resource for MPA managers to consider how different incentives might be combined to support the governance of their MPA.
