Abstract or Summary
  • To effectively respond to sustainability challenges, there is a need to find (or re-discover) suitable ways to govern, so as to make decisions that maintain healthy environments and sustainable livelihoods in fishery systems. While efforts to this end are needed at all governance levels, from the global to the local, this presentation a key to success lies in supporting local-level and community-based activities that link environmental, economic and social values to improve aquatic stewardship and fishery management.  Such activities are being assessed, and supported, through a global initiative, the Community Conservation Research Network (www.CommunityConservation.net). The CCRN is applying a social-ecological systems perspective to analyse a diverse set of study sites around the world, and to undertake a web-based international compilation of local-level experiences in conservation. This presentation describes emerging insights from an exploration of community-based conservation, with emphasis on initiatives driven by or based in fishing communities around the world. This includes studies of (a) social aspects relating to the meaning of ‘conservation’ and ‘stewardship’ in communities, governments and NGOs; (b) economic motivations (or lack thereof) for environmental conservation and stewardship; (c) the governance arrangements conducive to achieving successful outcomes for livelihoods and environmental wellbeing, and (d) the best means to monitor and assess those environmental, economic and social outcomes.
