IUCN's Members Views

IUCN, as a Union made up of more than 1,000 organizations and 10,000 scientists, attaches great importance to the participatory dimensions rooted in its foundations. The Rio+20 Conference being an important event for international community and civil society, IUCN embodies this participatory approach by giving voice to its Members on the policy related issues to be discussed in June.

Governance for Fisheries and Marine Conservation

This book is being prepared by a panel of leading experts in the governance of marine fisheries and biodiversity conservation, at the initiative and with contributions of the Fisheries Expert Group of the IUCN Commission on Ecosystem Management, under the coordination of the European Board of Conservation and Development (EBCD)

It 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)..... Click below for more information
