Community-based Marine and Coastal Resource Management (

Traditional fishing communities have, through long years of interaction with fisheries resources, learned to manage such resources in sustainable ways, enabling them to survive over generations. There are numerous examples from around the world about how communities have managed their resources, resolved conflicts over resources, and shared their benefits, often through the mediation of traditional or customary institutions. Small-scale fishing communities have evolved mechanisms to ensure that the resources, livelihood opportunities and revenues from the common property fisheries are spread as widely as possible within the whole community.

The ICSF website brings together bibliographic information from different parts of the world, including from peer-reviewed journals, case studies, reports and other literature on community-based marine and coastal resource management, and on co-management. It also provides information on the legal frameworks relevant for community-based resource management and other resources from ICSF publications.
