The effects of stakeholder interactions on capacity for integrated coastal governance in Morocco and Tunisia
MetadataShow full item record
In order to assess how stakeholder interactions affect local coastal governance in North Africa, 70 in-depth semi-structured interviews with 88 subjects were conducted across two sites in Morocco and Tunisia. Using Kooiman's socio-political theory of governance as an analytical framework, stakeholder interactions were analysed both in terms of intentional and conditional levels and related to three elements of governance capacity; images, tools and action potential. Aspects of the sites investigated included fresh water resources, fisheries management, agriculture, wetland conservation, tourism and recreational management, socio-economic development and urbanisation. The analysis revealed general similarities across both sites.
