Case studies in ecosystem-based management

Ecosystem-based management (EBM) offers an innovative approach to managing coastal ecosystems as it designs solutions to ecological issues with regard to social, economic and political drivers. It involves a whole-of-government, rather than a sectoral, approach and incorporates traditional management structures and practices. 

In January 2010, two parallel events were held in Rarotonga, Cook Islands, focussed on building the confidence of natural resource managers in implementing an EBM approach in the Pacific – a practical training course for middle and senior managers, and a forum for senior managers. 

These case studies from participants in these two events demonstrate how the ecosystem-based management (EBM) approach can be applied across the Pacific to address a range of issues.
