Policy, Planning, and Governance

In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill lists a few actions, however improbable each might sound, to outline changes in policy, planning, and governance that just might make a difference in the problems that confront the ocean--from subsidies, oversight, and options for the coastal zone to building pubic awareness and enforcement of existing regulations and treaties.


Peter Neill, Director of the W2O and host of World Ocean Radio, provides coverage of a broad spectrum of ocean issues from science and education to advocacy and exemplary projects. World Ocean Radio, a project of the World Ocean Observatory, is a weekly series of five-minute audio essays available for syndicated use at no cost by community radio stations worldwide.
