The creation of environmental and fisheries policy involves the consideration of a wide variety of interacting factors. MRAG understands the importance of the relationship between scientific research, evidence and policy development and provides clients with advice and guidance on the preparation of coherent policy frameworks. MRAG provides counsel and practical assistance in environmental policy and planning to several government agencies, bi-lateral and multi-lateral aid donors, and private companies. This includes advice on the establishment of fisheries regimes, legal agreements for international fishing rights and licensing, and the economic and biological sustainability of specific fisheries. MRAG's services also include coordination and facilitation of the involvement of multiple stakeholders within consensus-building processes.
