Sustainable financing mechanisms for Marine Protected Areas in North Devon

UK SEAS Project

This report is a product of the partnership UK Seas of WWF UK and Sky Ocean Rescue. It identifies potential finance mechanisms for Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) and analyses which of them are fitting for the MPAs of the United Kingdom, and North Devon in particular. Ecological, social and economic factors are included in the analysis, including the protection of sensitive habitats and species, tourism opportunities and carbon sequestration, among others. The main objective is to establish MPAs that are effectively designed and managed, which is possible with the support of sustainable, long-term funding. The UK SEAS Project developed several other reports and communications tools that can be find via the link below.
