The benefits that marine biodiversity and ecosystems provided to human societies are not shared equally among countries - and climate change will only exacerbate inequalities. In this Working Paper by the International Institute for Environment and Development, William CheungVicky  LamColette Wabnitzt argue that improving the governance of high seas fisheries would help redistribute benefits and reduce climate risks, especially in those developing countries that are most vulnerable to climate change impacts. The authors explore scenarios for future fisheries governance and evaluate the benefits and trade-offs of alternative policy frameworks to govern fisheries in a changing climate.
