The Division spear-heads the ecosystem management sub-programme - an approach to natural resources management that focuses on sustaining ecosystems to meet both ecological and human needs as well as promoting a shared vision of a desired future by integrating social, economic and environmental perspectives. This vision has been fostered the best in the area of marine and coastal ecosystems. Here, key areas of work include environmental aspects of fisheries, integrated management of marine protected areas, marine biodiversity and ecosystems, and impacts of climate change on the marine environment.
