The SAMUDRA Monographs deal with MPAs in Brazil, India, Mexico, South Africa and Tanzania. They examine the legal framework for MPA design and implementation, and document and analyze the experiences and views of local communities, particularly fishing communities. They also suggest how livelihood concerns can be integrated into the MPA process by engaging local, particularly fishing, communities, as equal partners in the planning and execution stages.
