Sustainable Ocean Economies

As countries around the world establish marine protected areas (MPAs) to protect marine biodiversity, they must determine how best to integrate those MPAs into their development goals.  The Government of Palau has declared that it will protect 80% of its Exclusive Economic Zone as an MPA.  They have asked us to convene a working group of local and international experts and decision makers to develop the analyses and options they need to create a plan that balances marine protection, development of sustainable nearshore and pelagic fisheries, and broader food policy.  Starting with the opportunity in Palau, we will develop approaches that are appropriate to other countries across the Pacific.
