Marine Protected Areas (MPAs)
This month, the NAPA began our saga on the governance of protected areas in Africa. This issue quickly draws the overall context and future editions will be dedicated to the specific aspects of the different governance models namely: the private sector, and then governance by both the State and communities.
This report presents an up-to-date analysis and synthesis of the Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) of the Eastern African Region covering the States of Comoros, Kenya, Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, Seychelles, and Tanzania. The report also reviews the successful approaches to the management of MPAs and Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) projects in Eastern Africa. Strategies for effective management of the MPAs to integrate local community concerns are also presented.
