Chapter Summary

The importance of active, and ecologically sustainable, participation of local, traditional, and/or indigenous peoples in protected area management is clear within marine protected area (MPA) related instruments, including, inter-alia, the OSPAR regime, the International Coral Reef Initiative (ICRI), the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and East African Protocols. A clear subset of the popular participation issue relates to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) which have 'grass roots'. That is, NGOs who get actively involved with local topics and 'on-the-ground' work in protected areas. In these instances, the contributions of NGOs working in particular areas range from small to large. Finally, the Antarctic regime has, partly due to its unique position, a more constraining approach to NGOs seeking to work 'on the ground' under their auspice.

Keywords: Antarctic regime; indigenous peoples; international coral reef initiative (ICRI); marine protected area (MPA); non-governmental organisations (NGO); protected areas
