Abstract

One of the most important things to understand about marine protected areas, is that they are ultimately designed to alter the way humans interact with their environment. In South East Asia, coastal communities are much more likely to be dependent on marine resources for livelihoods, with limited opportunities for livelihood diversification, compared with coastal communities in more developed countries. Recognising the overwhelming global targets for the protection of marine habitats, there needs to be more consideration for the way that people fit in to the way that conservation programmes are designed and implemented. Bearing in mind the factors that are widely considered to make marine protected areas successful, the governance strategies involved, and the resources needed to implement the number of protected areas required, the situation is extremely complex. Theory suggests that if we implement a large number of protected areas, then it is reasonable to assume that some of them will be successful. However, this is where it is essential to remember the people impacted by protected areas. This chapter seeks to identify a number of the issues facing the effective implementation of conservation strategies, in an effort to identify a path towards effective marine resource management.
