MARINE AND COASTAL PROTECTED AREAS

United Nations Environment Programme (2006)

Marine and coastal protected areas (MCPAs) are now universally recognized as key tools for the conservation and management of marine species, habitats and ecosystems. The need is clear: coastal development and population growth, depleted marine resources, pollution of coastal ecosystems, degradation of coral reefs, and dramatic loss of biodiversity are but a few of the warning signs that urgent action is needed.
