Designing Marine Protected Area Networks to Achieve Fisheries Biodiversity and Climate Change Objectives in Tropical Ecosystems: A Practitioners Guide

Green, A., White, A., Kilarski, S. (Eds.) 2013. Designing Marine Protected Area Networks to Achieve Fisheries Biodiversity and Climate Change Objectives in Tropical Ecosystems: A Practitioners Guide. The Nature Conservancy, and the USAID Coral Triangle Support Partnership, Cebu City, Philippines.

This guide provides a set of biophysical principles to help practitioners design networks of marine protected areas to achieve fisheries sustainability, biodiversity conservation and ecosystem resilience in the face of climate change.

The document refers to and draws upon much of the latest scientific evidence concerning fisheries and protected area design. For readers who require more details of the scientific background, they can review the detailed technical report: Biophysical principles for designing resilient networks of marine protected areas to integrate fisheries biodiversity and climate change objectives in the Coral Triangle.
