Marine Protected Area Planning in Aotearoa, New Zealand: Reflections on Participation and Process
Marine protected areas (MPAs) are a critical element of fisheries management and biodiversity conservation strategies around the world. However, MPA planning is a complex undertaking that requires consideration of many factors, as well as balancing social, cultural, and economic interests. Engaging diverse actors, including indigenous partners, in MPA planning, establishment, and management has consistently been identified as key to ‘successful’ MPA implementation. This talk discusses MPA planning in Aotearoa New Zealand, with a focus on the role of participation and collaboration in the development and implementation of MPAs. Lessons learned that may be applicable elsewhere are drawn from this work.

This talk is co-sponsored by the Urban and Environmental Policy and Planning Department.
