Document (1 MB) Mary Lack and Glenn Sant (November 2008). 57pp. In recent years there has been growing international concern for the conservation status of sharks, skates, rays and chimaeras.

With an Eye to the Future: Addressing failures in the global management of Bigeye Tuna

Document (1.6 MB) Mary Lack. (November 2007). 61pp. The best scientific advice available indicates that the Eastern Pacific Ocean (EPO) stock of Bigeye Tuna is overfished, that overfishing is occurring and that all stocks are, at a minimum, fully exploited. There is no scope to increase catch of Bigeye Tuna without putting the stocks at risk. The analysis in this report has found that management of Bigeye Tuna has been far from swift and effective to date. Published by: TRAFFIC International & WWF Australia.

Forestry, Governance and National Development: Lessons Learned from a Logging Boom in Southern Tanzania

An Overview (1.6 MB) (in Chinese, 2.9 MB) Simon.H. Milledge, Ised K. Gelvas, Antje Ahrends. (February 2007). 16pp. ISBN 0 9802542 1 3 (ISBN 978 0 9802542 1 1).

Full Report (4.8 MB, full report) Simon A.H. Milledge, Ised K. Gelvas, Antje Ahrends. (February 2007). 250pp. ISBN 1 85850 224 1 (ISBN 978 1 85850 224 3) First reprint (ISBN 978 1 85850 232 8). This study of contemporary timber trade has provided a revealing example of how governance shortfalls in the forestry sector can ultimately affect the prospects for achieving national economic growth and poverty objectives. Whilst numerous opportunities and benefits of timber trade have been, and continue to be, realized, this report illustrates how poor forestry governance directly undermines two clusters of the 2005 National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (NSGRP).
