The development of this second edition of these guidelines was in part a response to evidence of the widespread incorrect application of the categories to marine protected areas (MPAs). Marine management and sustainable fisheries management are critical elements of good oceans management, but are not the same as protected areas management, where the primary focus is conservation of nature. The primary purpose of these supplementary guidelines is to increase the accuracy and consistency of assignment and reporting of the IUCN categories when applied to marine and coastal protected areas.
This book is the seventh in a compilation of ten technical and policy papers on Integrated Coastal Management (ICM) in the Philippines.

This Manila Bay Area 2018 is initially intended to be called Manila Bay Atlas and is proposed to be the 3rd Edition of the Manila Bay Atlas. During the August 15, 2018 meeting with NAMRIA and MBCO, in principle the proposal was accepted but with the understanding that:
▪ The Manila Bay Atlas 3rd Edition is still due by 2020;
▪ There are still ongoing surveys (i.e., ERDB, bathymetric survey) which is expected to be completed between 2019 and 2020; and
▪ A Technical Working Group for the Manila Bay 3rd Edition is yet to be created.
