The relative importance of the immediate and root sources and causes of the problems are assessed with a view...
03 Aug 2019 - publication - English Marine ecosystem regime shifts: challenges and opportunities for ecosystem-based management
AUTHORS: Phillip S. Levin and Christian Möllmann ABSTRACT: Regime shifts have been observed in marine ecosystems around the globe. These phenomena can result in dramatic changes in the provision of ecosystem services to coastal communities. Accounting for regime shifts in management clearly requires integrative, ecosystem-based management (EBM) approaches. EBM has emerged as an accepted paradigm for ocean management worldwide, yet, despite the rapid and intense development of EBM theory,...
03 Aug 2019 - publication - English Implementation challenges of area-based management tools (ABMTs) for biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ)
AUTHOR: Elizabeth M. De Santo ABSTRACT: Area-based management tools (ABMTs), including marine protected areas (MPAs) are widely recognized as a key mechanism for conserving and restoring biodiversity. The developing international legally-binding instrument (ILBI) on biodiversity beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ) is considering a range of approaches to ABMTs. While the process is still in early stages, this paper looks ahead to anticipate implementation challenges for ABMTs, given previo...

AUTHORS: Mark Spalding, Lauretta Burke, Spencer A. Wood, Joscelyne Ashpole, James Hutchison, Philine zu Ermgassen ABSTRACT: Global coral reef related tourism is one of the most significant examples of nature-based tourism from a single ecosystem. Coral reefs attract foreign and domestic visitors and generate revenues, including foreign exchange earnings, in over 100 countries and territories. Understanding the full value of coral reefs to tourism, and the spatial distribution of these val...

03 Aug 2019 - publication - English Maritime spatial planning: opportunities & challenges in the framework of the EU integrated maritime policy
AUTHORS: Nicole Schaefer and Vittorio Barale ABSTRACT: In recent years, maritime spatial planning (MSP) has become an internationally emerging, promising tool for the implementation of integrated ocean management. MSP provides the appropriate framework for public authorities and stakeholders to coordinate their action across sectors and administrative boundaries, and to optimize the use of natural resources. In November 2008 the European Commission adopted the Communication “Roadmap for M...
03 Aug 2019 - publication - English Introduction to marine spatial planning
AUTHOR: Charles N. Ehler ABSTRACT: Competition and conflict for space and resources characterizes the oceans of the Coral Triangle. Because of some of the highest rates of population growth and increasing food and development needs, these waters are now experiencing increased levels of conflict and social unrest as a result of differing and uneven levels of economic development, resource use, and technological change between urban and rural area within a country. Economic and technologica...
03 Aug 2019 - publication - English Marine protected areas, marine spatial planning, and the resilience of marine ecosystems
AUTHORS: Robin Kundis Craig and Terry Hughes ABSTRACT: This chapter of a forthcoming book entitled RESILIENCE AND THE LAW explores the stressors to marine ecosystems and the role that place-based marine management, including marine protected areas (MPAs), marine reserves or No-Take Areas (NTAs), and marine spatial planning can play in maintaining and increasing these ecosystems' resilience, especially in the face of climate change impacts. It covers both the science and the law governing ...
01 Aug 2019 - publication - English Scaling up Community Actions for International Waters Management
The GEF Small Grants Programme has supported the implementation of regional Strategic Action Programmes with 1,027 small grant projects in more than forty transboundary waterbodies around the World. SGP experience show that communities when empowered to take action can implement concrete measures to reverse environmental degradation trends.

01 Aug 2019 - publication - English The Political Economy of Regionalism: The Relevance for International Waters and the Global Environment Facility
Most freshwater and marine systems are transboundary in nature and therefore depend on sound regionalism and regional governance. The way these transboundary water systems are governed and managed is of vital importance for economic and social development, food security, biodiversity conservation, and the sustainable use and maintenance of ecosystem services. Yet there is little systematic knowledge about how transboundary water management systems are affected by regionalism and regional orga...
