Análisis de la gobernanza de la actividad pesquera en la provincia de Montecristi

La gobernanza se refiere a los procesos de toma de decisiones y sus implementaciones. Su análisis se concentra en los actores formales e informales que están involucrados en dichos procesos.  Algunos sostienen que la gobernanza está  ligada a los procesos de interacción entre los actores involucrados en un asunto público, que llevan a la toma de decisiones o a la formulación de normas. El presente documento parte de estos conceptos y realiza un análisis de  la gobernanza de la actividad pesquera en la provincia de Montecristi, tendiendo en consideración que la existencia de los debidos consensos en cuanto a las metas,  roles, responsabilidades y la transparencia de las acciones, facilitan la unión de esfuerzos y voluntades de todos los potenciales actores en cada área de actividad de la pesca arrecifal que es fuente de beneficio colectivo a la población, proporcionando alimento de forma sostenible que a la vez puede contribuir a la preservación del ambiente si se hace de forma responsable. Consenso, objetivos y normas claras, participación y transparencia son claves para una buena gobernanza!

Blue Economy Scoping Study for Dominica

Following the devastating hurricane that struck the island of Dominica in 2017, the Government of Dominica is focusing on the development of a long-term strategy to become the world’s first Climate Resilient country. In this regard, the Government has signalled its desire to integrate the Blue Economy into future resilience building initiatives. The United Nations Development Programme is supporting them in this aspiration and is extending technical support to Dominica to explore options to integrate the blue economy into its broader resilience building activities. This report, prepared on behalf of UNDP, underpins this technical support and represents the first two of three deliverables under the UNDP programme of assistance, namely: a Stocktake; and a National Diagnostic Analysis. The purpose of these outputs is to provide both UNDP and the Government of Dominica with some understanding of the possible opportunities that the blue economy presents. They provide an overview of current context and opportunities, a technical analysis of impediments, and makes recommendations for ways forward.
