CALAMAR Expert Paper – Integrated Marine Policies and Tools Working Group (2011)
Gold, B., Pastoors, M., Babb-Brott, D., Ehler, C., King, M., Maes, F., Mengerink, K., Mueller, M., Pitta E Cuhna, T., Ruckelshaus, M., Sandifer, P. and Veum, K. Existing fragmented management schemes offer no way to address the interactions of the myriad activities that occur simultaneously on and in the oceans, and their cumulative impacts on the health and productivity of marine ecosystems. But the times and tides are changing. Several countries are developing integrated planning and management approaches to sustain the benefits that healthy seas provide humanity. As in many new endeavors, learning by doing, distilling those experiences into best practices, and sharing them with a broader audience of policy makers, stakeholders, researchers, and the general public will benefit all.
