Governing Marine Protected Areas – resilience through diversity

On 26th November, Dr Peter Jones gave an opening plenary talk at the Global Marine Protected Area Enforcement conference in San Francisco. His presentation, based on the findings of the MPA Governance Project, argued that governance systems tend to be more resilient to challenges to conservation objectives where a diversity of incentives to enforce restrictions is combined. He drew an analogy with ecological systems, in which a larger diversity of species supports greater resilience.

The conference, organised by WildAid, was attended by 180 experts, from more than 30 countries, involved in managing Marine Protected Areas and enforcing conservation restrictions.
