The Ecosystem Approach in Ocean Planning and Governance: Perspectives from Europe and Beyond

Edited by: David Langlet, Rosemary Rayfuse

ISBN13: 9789004389977
To be Published: February 2019
Publisher: Brill Nijhoff
Country of Publication: The Netherlands
Format: Hardback
Price: £115.00

The Ecosystem Approach in Ocean Planning and Governance takes stock of the challenges associated with implementing an ecosystem approach in ocean governance. In addition to theorizing the notion of Ecosystem Approach and its multifaceted implications, the book provides in depth analyses of lessons learned and remaining challenges associated with making the Ecosystem Approach fully relevant and operational in different marine policy fields, including marine spatial planning, fisheries, and biodiversity protection. In doing so, it adds much needed legal and social science perspectives to the existing literature on the Ecosystem Approach in relation to the marine environment. While focusing predominantly on the European context, the perspective is enriched by analyses from other jurisdictions, including the USA.
