These guidelines aim to show how working more closely with people living in and around Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) - addressing their needs and concerns and encouraging their involvement in management - can lead to increased MPA effectiveness. The guidelines contain a selection of ideas, real-world examples from the Caribbean region, and theoretical insights/methodologies that have been shown to be useful when addressing issues of MPA management.
