Chapter Summary

Marine Science has demonstrated its clear utility for providing an improved knowledge base on which informed marine and coastal resource management decisions can and should be based. However, marine science partnerships and cooperation also have great potential to serve as a vehicle for improving international relations, and UNCLOS encourages signatories to promote marine science capacity building in developing countries. A new paradigm for interactions between scientists and resource managers through international marine science partnerships was implemented as part of the Red Sea Marine Peace Park Cooperative Research, Monitoring and Resource Management (RSMPP) Program. The RSMPP Program may serve as a model for improving international relations and building capacity through marine science cooperation. National Science Board recommendations in this regard will have particular focus on the utility of S&p;E partnerships to yield more than just excellence in science.
