Exclusionary decision-making processes in marine governance: The rezoning plan for the protected areas of the Galapagos Islands, Ecuador
With Diana Burbano, PhD – OFI Post-Doctoral Fellow – Department of Sociology and Anthropology, Dalhousie University, Halifax – Canada
- Abstract :
The number of marine protected areas (MPAs) has increased twenty-fold since 1993. There are ambitious targets for further expansion set by international conservation agencies. This expansion has been accompanied by claims that only No-take MPAs can effectively ensure biodiversity conservation, and the international marine conservation community has become increasingly active and influential in promoting them. This paper assesses stakeholder engagement in decision-making processes related to marine conservation planning in the Galapagos Marine Reserve, and examines how these processes have been influenced by shifting narratives of biodiversity conservation in the lead up to, and the execution of, the 2016 rezoning process.
