The thesis addresses the issue of how marine protected areas (MPAs) impact on the food security of communities residing around MPAs. The research focuses on Karimunjawa Marine National Park utilising two measures of food security: the Household Food Insecurity Access Scale and the Household Dietary Diversity Scale to examine the extent of food insecurity within villages and derive predictive relationships between household characteristics and food insecurity. The results shed new light on how food security may be measured in communities and the extent to which regulations on resource access affect households to maintain food security through fishing and income-generating activities.
