      Topic: New institutions for marine conservation

      Most existing marine institutions are ill-equipped for conservation. Much of the ocean is either completely unmanaged, or is heavily regulated with top-down extraction policies that give little autonomy to local communities and other stakeholders to engage in bottom up conservation. This may be one explanation for why ocean conservation is lagging far behind land conservation (despite the much higher cost of the latter). In this talk I propose and examine a practical set of new institutions that are designed to correct these incentive problems and increase marine conservation. This new package of institutions accounts for behavioral responses of resource users, incentives for illegal activity, shifts arising due to climate change, and other real-world factors. I use a range of bioeconomic and empirical tools to design and evaluate these new institutions and show how and where they could be implemented in the real world.
