Monday 17 October 2016 10:37am

Dr Janet Stephenson, Director of the Centre, recently presented at Fridtjof Nansen Institute, Norway on locally governed and community-based fisheries and marine management systems. Dr Stephenson addressed the question, is local and small-scale resource management necessarily better than large-scale, market-based policy instruments,when she recently held a presentation at FNI . She shared insights and examples from New Zealand, where over the last years there has been a significant shift towards more locally governed and community-based fisheries and marine management systems, often related to Maori traditions and Maori communities.
