The marine rights of indigenous people and traditional coastal communities are increasingly being impacted by government commitments to achieving Aitchi targets and international competition to lead the field in securing the biodiversity of the "Blue Planet" by declaring vast swathes of ocean to be Marine Protected Areas. Some of these are little more than 'paper parks' in which the areas encompassed are so huge as to make the intended protections unenforceable and unsustainable. Neither pragmatic considerations not the negative consequences these measures may have on indigenous people and coastal communities, appear to deter this race for blue credentials. This chapter looks at the context and motivation for marine protected areas and the actual and potential conflict of interests that these provoke.
