Happy New Year OpenChannels Community Members,

Simon Fraser University has published a new report on Marine Protected Area Network Design Features that Support Resilient Human-Ocean Systems: Applications to British Columbia, Canada. The "synthesis suggests the successful establishment and effective management of MPA networks depend on legitimate and effective governance arrangements that can accommodate ecological criteria while considering the perspectives and input of local resource users and stakeholders." You may download the full report using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
