Adaptive Governance

D. G. Webster

The MIT Press

This book reveals that a better understanding of the vulnerability response approach is essential for adaptive governance of the fishing industry. Effective management tools are essential for protecting and managing highly migratory species of fish due to increasing demand for fish products. The International Commission for the Conservation of Atlantic Tunas and other international monitoring agencies can play a key role in developing and implementing better management tools aimed at protecting and managing the prospects of the fishing industry in the future. The book focuses on developing and testing assumptions on the relationship between growing economic competition and political strategies through a framework on economic vulnerability. It also reveals that for a better understanding of adaptive governance, the vulnerability response approach needs to be improved and expanded.

Keywords:   vulnerability response, management tools, fishing industry, economic competitions, political strategy
