Sustainability Ecosystem management Marine reserves

This technical appendix provides a compendium of the 34 case study summaries that form the evidence base for the main volume: UN Environment (2019) Enabling Effective and Equitable Marine Protected Areas – guidance on combining governance approaches. These summaries are based on the ‘Marine Protected Area Governance (MPAG)’ framework, which is set out in the section after the glossary, and defines all the incentives used, as well as providing further guidance on how these summaries are populated. 

The case studies cover a variety of marine protected area types, including no-take, multiple-use, small, large, remote, private, government-led, decentralized and community-led protected areas. They highlight different governance approaches, challenges faced, and solutions implemented to achieve conservation objectives.
