The book titled “Governance for Fisheries and Marine Conservation”, expected to be published by beginning of 2013, examines the interface between the governance of marine fisheries on the one hand, and that of marine biodiversity and ecosystem conservation on the other. It identifies their interactions at different scales and in various institutions, as well as their respective principles, conceptual objectives, policies, plans, processes and operational instruments.
The book identifies and focuses on conceptual and operational synergies and conflicts as well as duplications and gaps. The key goal is to improve understanding of both governance systems and thereby to facilitate their improved coherence. This fits with the prime objectives of the Fisheries Expert Group of the IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management (IUCN-CEM-FEG).
