Co-Management for Fisheries, a Type of Public Engmt

A new study from the recent issue of Nature (January 5) notes how "the bulk of the world's fisheries -- including small-scale, often non-industrialized fisheries on which millions of people depend for food -- could be sustained using community-based co-management."  (See more at this link.)  This is a fascinating report, in that it repeats a theme described in country reports from Cambodia in the IAP2 and Kettering Foundation 2010 joint project report, "Painting the Landscape: A Cross-Cultural Exploration of Public-Government Decision Making" (you can download the report from IAP2's website).  The report notes how co-management is considered a type of public participation by interviewees.
