GloBallast Monograph Series No.18-Guidelines for Development of a National Ballast Water Management Strategy
The manual is directed at national level practitioners as a hands-on guide to the development of national ballast water management strategies. It is intended as a source of basic information and as step-by-step guidance in the development of national ballast water management strategies. As such it can be used as a ‘cook book’ throughout a process, or as a resource/reference book. Several other, related guidelines are being prepared by the GloBallast Partnerships Programme, together with IUCN and other institutions. These include Guidelines for National Ballast Water Status Assessments, Guidelines for Economic Assessments of the Impacts of Marine Invasive Alien Species, and Guidelines for Legal Reform.
