Waves of Change: Coastal and Fisheries Co-management in Southern Africa
This book provides an overview of nine coastal and fisheries co-management case studies in South Africa. The approach used in this book reflects the world-wide trend to implement models which utilise local user groups in the management of coastal and fisheries resources. The book outlines the concepts and theoretical underpinnings of co-management and it examines the policy and legal framework governing coastal and fisheries resource management in southern Africa. The book aims to enhance our understanding of the status of co-management in South Africa and to provide policy makers, resource managers and researchers with information on the concept and practice of implementing co-management. It examines the conditions needed to ensure successful co-management, the positive outcomes of adopting this approach, the principle challenges, comparisons with international experience and the viability of implementing coastal and fisheries co-management for South Africa.
