  • Description:
    "Of the six SocMon regions, the WIO region has the strongest coordination at the regional level due to a strong commitment by CORDIO to socioeconomic monitoring. However, limited capacity and expertise using computers at the site level has delayed reporting of results form SocMon data collected since 2005. Results for several for the sites are now available and indicate a strong dependence on fishing by coastal communities. Overall, evidence from the sites indicates that resource conditions are worsening in the WIO region, particularly with respect to fishery resources. The most commonly perceived threat to coastal and fishery resources in the WIO is illegal fishing and lack of enforcement. For sites with MPAs satisfaction with MPAs is generally much lower than in other regions and MPAs are not perceived to have improved fishery resources, which may be due to a lack of compliance with and enforcement of MPA regulations, limiting the effectiveness of MPAs in increasing fishery resources"--Regional summary.
