Delivering Integrated Marine Management - good governance or good government?

Via LinkedIn

"Since leaving the MMO, I have reflected on our achievements, and our failings, order to to create a framework for delivering integrated marine management (IMM) that can be used in any governmental situation. I have also been reconnecting with some of my academic colleagues, and realised that I found it quite difficult to map my experiences within government onto many of the theoretical constructs of marine governance in the academic literature. I have a feeling that this is mainly because in government, you are focused on the political reality of delivery, which can be capricious at times, rather than sticking to a rigid decision making theory or philosophical approach. This often results in delivery mechanisms and decision making frameworks that may not be perfect from a theoretical point of view, but allow good, proportionate decision making to take place."
