The Convention on Biological Diversity set specific targets for halting biodiversity loss, including the need to establish 10 per cent of coastal/marine areas conserved through, among other things, well-connected systems of protected areas by 2020. The reality is that whereas nearly 15 per cent of land is protected, just over 1 per cent of marine space is similarly protected. The challenge is to reach “a global representative system” of Marine Protected Areas. The purpose of this paper is to address the options and trends for countries to develop transboundary cooperation through MPAs. The authors address several case studies, focusing on political, governance and financing frameworks.
