Abstract

This publication was prepared under the auspices of a multidisciplinary Global Think Tank (GloTT) for the World Bank’s Ocean Partnerships for Sustainable Fisheries and Biodiversity Conservation: Models for Innovation and Reform (OPP). The World Bank’s OPP is one of four projects under the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (ABNJ) Program and World Wildlife Fund-Inc. (WWF-US) is one of the partners under this GEF-ABNJ or Common Oceans umbrella. Drawing on the vast multidisciplinary literature and insights from the Common Oceans Global Think Tank on ABNJ fisheries, this publication presents nine principles for utilizing “smart mixes” of regulatory and incentive-based tools (instruments). The following nine principles for smart instrument mixes are explained further in the publication, bolstered by examples and case studies.
