Development of a Model for Enhancing Justice in MPA Designation and Zoning and its Application to Taiwan's South Penghu Marine National Park

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Multi-purpose marine protected areas (MPAs) are prevalent worldwide as institutional mechanisms deployed in the marine environment to manage multiple uses, conserve resources and protect ecosystems. Yet some people may experience disadvantage following

    the implementation of new MPAs. One understudied aspect of MPAs

    is the distribution of advantages and disadvantages and how best to

    address the “justice” concerns that they raise. This article identifies a

    framework of principles, methods and tools to address these concerns. It devises a “MPA justice model” and demonstrates its applicability to a Taiwanese case study. In 2014, Taiwan proclaimed its first

    multiple-purpose MPA, the South Penghu Marine National Park and

    the case study shows ways that the MPA’s socio-economic sustainability could have been better accomplished. The article focuses on

    future MPA establishment that incorporates distributional fairness

    and procedural legitimacy into MPA site designation and zoning

    design - but might also be adapted to use retrospectively in MPA

    review processes.
