For the week of 17 July 2017
Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,
Open Journal of Marine Science has published, Assessing Marine Protected Areas Effectiveness: A Case Study with the Tobago Cays Marine Park (TCMP). "By comparing the performance of the MPA over a 10-year span (2007 and 2016), the results indicate that overall, the TCMP could be described as having limited success when key management categories of context, planning, input, process, output and outcomes are evaluated. In particular, efforts dedicated to planning, process and outcomes are assessed as deficient. Furthermore, the analysis revealed that efforts to realize the stated goals relating to conservation, public awareness and public education were being neglected."
