Abstract: This thesis examines through a case study the legal and governance issues facing coastal resource governance in the region. Of particular interest is the power sharing arrangement and decentralised governance structures within states that impinge on the use and control over coastal resources. By examining the mechanics of resource governance and accompanying legislative framework, the task involves identifying opportunities presented by current decentralisation or devolution laws that provide the basis, if any, for transforming traditional management institutions into legally incorporated bodies that can undertake resource management functions within formal structures.
