Gestion des Aires Marines Protégées - Manuel pour la région de l'Océan Indien Occidental

Les AMPs (Aires Marines Protégées) ont été établies à travers
le monde pour diverses raisons, comme la conservation, le
tourisme et l’éducation. Au moment de la production de ce

IUCN/NRDC Workshop to Identify Areas of Ecological and Biological Significance or Vulnerability in the Arctic Marine Environment

IUCN/NRDC Workshop to Identify Areas of Ecological and Biological Significance or Vulnerability in the Arctic Marine Environment

Human activity is expanding in the Arctic marine environment, in part due to warming ocean temperatures and the dramatic loss of summer sea ice. New and expanding human uses include fishing, shipping and offshore oil and gas development. All have the potential to place major additional stress on ocean ecosystems which are already undergoing profound change related to warming, sea ice loss, and alterations in ocean chemistry.
