Framework for Assessing and Improving Law for Sustainability A Legal Component of a Natural Resource Governance Framework Paul Martin, Ben Boer and Lydia Slobodian (Eds.): Brazil: Participation principle and marine protected areas

Abstract : Marine protected areas75 (MPAs) are legal instruments to safeguard the integrity of marine ecosystems and biodiversity. They must also safeguard the rights of local and traditional communities living in or near coastal zones, ideally with full consideration of, and active participation by, users of marine environmental resources in the areas’ management. Participation in the process of creating and managing MPAs is a key not only to acceptance of their establishment, but also to their administrative success.76 Brazilian law does recognize the participation principle as fundamental for the creation and management of MPAs, but improvement is still needed in the implementation of this principle by public authorities.
