Protecting East Africa’s marine and coastal biodiversity. Marine Conservation Agreements in the Western Indian Ocean




Commercial enterprises have been acquiring rights to marine and coastal areas for centuries for fisheries, energy and other uses. Increasingly, by using Marine Conservation Agreements, organisations like The Nature Conservancy (TNC) have begun to acquire similar rights for purposes that safeguard marine resources and benefit local communities. The Conservancy is developing a wide-ranging analysis of the role and feasibility of MCAs in key regions worldwide. This report examines one such region – the Western Indian Ocean (WIO) – and documents findings from an analysis of the ocean and coastal legal frameworks in Kenya, Tanzania, Mozambique, Madagascar, Seychelles and South Africa.
