Abstract: Rapid coastal area appraisal techniques were used to determine the status and management of the marine protected areas of Madagascar. Information was derived from structured interviews with stakeholders, existing databases, a literature review and observations at the respective case study sites. The objective was to conduct a critical analysis of the progress, including successes and failures of the management of marine protected areas in Madagascar since their establishment. The ability of the management process in maintaining the quality and quantity of biodiversity, the conservation and rational management of marine resources, protection of the ecosystem and improving the livelihood of coastal communities were used as objective criteria for the assessment.
