International Waters learning Exchange & Resource Network
IW:Learn

The document library includes a wide array of outputs from projects (reports, presentations, case studies, terms of reference) as well as other content of interest to GEF International waters. Project managers and GEF International Waters staff are invited to give their feedback or submit case studies, ToRs, or other documentation to be included in the document library (info@iwlearn.org)

This book is about outstanding partners who have succeeded in overcoming challenges and made a difference in their communities. It features community champions from the municipality of Taytay and Balabac in Palawan, Zamboanga del Sur and Zamboanga...
11 Sep 2017 by eve - publication Ecosystem Overfishing in the Ocean (2008)
Fisheries catches represent a net export of mass and energy that can no longer be used by trophic levels higher than those fished. Thus, exploitation implies a depletion of secondary production of higher trophic levels (here the production of mass...
11 Sep 2017 by eve - publication Fishing through Marine Food Webs (2006)
A recurring pattern of declining mean trophic level of fisheries landings, termed "fishing down the food web," is thought to be indicative of the serial replacement of high-trophic-level fisheries with less valuable, low-trophic-level fisheries as...
11 Sep 2017 by eve - publication Regional fishery management organizations and large marine ecosystems (2016)
Regional fisheries management organizations (RFMOs) addressing the management of living marine resources have a long history, beginning in 1811 with the North Pacific Fur Seal Convention followed by the International Pacific Halibut Conventionin 1...
07 Sep 2017 by eve - publication Restoring and Protecting the world's large marine ecosystems: An engine for job creation and sustainable economic development (2016)
Some of the most significant threats to the sustainability of the world's 66 Large Marine Ecosystems (LME) – invasive species, coastal hypoxia, overfishing, marine debris and ocean acidification – are due to a combination of market and/or policy f...
01 Sep 2017 by eve - publication Fishery production potential of large marine ecosystems: A prototype analysis (2016)
Attempts to define the fishery production potential of marine systems based on energetic considerations have an extensive history. Bottom-up control of fish production has now been demonstrated in many regions of the world ocean supporting the gen...
01 Sep 2017 by eve - publication Accelerated Warming and Emergent Trends in Fisheries Biomass Yields of the World's Large Marine Ecosystems (2009)
Information on the effects of global climate change on trends in global fisheries biomass yields has been limited in spatial and temporal scale. Results are presented of a global study of the impact of sea surface temperature (SST) changes over th...
31 Aug 2017 by eve - publication Long-term changes and recurrent patterns in fisheries landings from Large Marine Ecosystems (1950–2004) (2012)
The regional dynamics of industrial fisheries within Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) boundaries were investigated by means of a historical-descriptive approach. Landings data from the Sea Around Us Project database were used to detect trends in tot...
24 May 2017 by eve - publication Pathways between Primary Production and Fisheries Yields of Large Marine Ecosystems (2012)
The shift in marine resource management from a compartmentalized approach of dealing with resources on a species basis to an approach based on management of spatially defined ecosystems requires an accurate accounting of energy flow. The flow of e...
24 May 2017 by eve - publication Potential consequences of climate change for primary production and fish production in large marine ecosystems (2012)
Existing methods to predict the effects of climate change on the biomass and production of marine communities are predicated on modelling the interactions and dynamics of individual species, a very challenging approach when interactions and distri...
24 May 2017 by eve - publication Regional fishery management organizations and large marine ecosystems (2015)
The LME approach was fleshed out in the 1980s and initiated as both the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and country projects, beginning in the mid-1990s. LMEs have fisheries as a major component to be addressed under the LME five-module concept....
24 May 2017 by eve - publication The application of satellite remote sensing for assessing productivity in relation to fisheries yields of the world's large marine ecosystems (2011)
In 1992, world leaders at the historical UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) recognized that the exploitation of resources in coastal oceans was becoming increasingly unsustainable, resulting in an international effort to assess, ...
24 May 2017 by eve - publication A new imperative for improving management of large marine ecosystems (2002)
A five-module assessment and management methodology is being tested that moves the countries toward adopting practical joint governance institutions through place based management. This LME approach engages stakeholders, fosters the participation ...
