Abstract

This chapter draws attention to the pivotal role that local communities have in the management of marine and coastal areas in Africa, and the increasingly important role that they can play not only at the local, but also the national and regional levels such as in the management of Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) – many of which involve several countries (Hennessey and Sutinen, 2005).
