Cat 5 Cable Wiring Diagram Cat 5 568B Wiring Diagram “The ocean is a global commons—we all have a stake in it. Fish don’t pay attention to borders, but the way we’re currently governing the ocean is extremely fragmented. If we’re going to create lasting governance solutions for our oceans, we need both bottom-up innovation and top-down leadership. A more holistic approach is critical,” explained co-author Mary Ruckelshaus, managing director of the Stanford Natural Capital Project.

The ocean is a complex system, but it hasn’t been managed that way in the past. Instead, current ocean governance is largely dependent on national policies that only consider the waters within each coastal country’s own territory. But it’s not only fish and other sea life that don’t pay attention to borders—the ocean is intrinsically linked to ecosystems on land, rivers, deltas, and estuaries. If we continue our business-as-usual approach to managing the ocean, say the researchers, it will result in the collapse of key biophysical functions and have significant implications for the global economy.

In fact, it is now important more than ever to understand complex systems and how they can be made more resilient for the benefit of people, the economy, and the environment.

The first is the need to re-configure governance—including top-down and bottom-up nested scales from local to international—and informed by a shared vision. The second is by empowering people who depend on the ocean commons through knowledge sharing for adaptive learning and conferring rights to the ocean as a public good. The third is by reforming ownership in stewardship terms through mechanisms such as certification and pre-competitive collaboration, which will provide incentives and help build accountability. The Marine Stewardship Council’s fishery certification system and rights-based fishery reforms like catch shares are promising examples of such innovations.

Shifting our relationship with the ocean towards this mutual, holistic understanding is required in order to secure the benefits we receive from it for the long term.”
