The MUCH of the historic and Arabian trade routes

Robert Parthesius, Jonathan Sharfman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This book has explicitly explored perspectives of MUCH management around the western Indian Ocean. Strategies and approaches to the management of MUCH have differed within the varying political, social and economic contexts of western Indian Ocean states linked by the historic and Arabian trade routes. Despite differing approaches, however, all have recognized, to some degree or another, the significance of their maritime pasts and the value of conserving elements of the MUCH resource. All have taken steps, therefore, to manage the resource through the development of both legislative frameworks and the capacity required to identify, administer and study MUCH. This development has taken different forms driven by the needs and political facility of individual states.
