Title Local and regional experiences with assessing and fostering ocean health Appearing in Marine Policy Volume 71 Issue No. September 2016 Publication Date 2016-05 Place of Publication Cardiff Publisher Elsevier Ltd. Start page 54 End page 59 Language eng Abstract During the international symposium on “Regional Applications and Nexus of the Ocean Health Index” at The University of Tokyo in Japan in July 2015, a range of experts, practitioners and researchers discussed the potential for assessing the current state of ocean health at different scales, as well as changes over time. Discussions focused on how the successful assessment and implementation of projects aimed at fostering ocean health and resilient coastal ecosystems strongly depends on a multi-stakeholder approach and local leadership. In addition, recent examples of regional independent assessments conducted using the Ocean Health Index were introduced, with an accompanying explanation of how the Index goals can be adjusted, specified or weighted in line with a local context or policy direction. This manuscript introduces key points raised during the symposium as well as relevant supplementary materials. UNBIS Thesaurus MALDIVES
