Governance feasibility of marine ecosystem-based management: A comparative analysis (EBM)

Principal Investigators:

Patrick J. Christie, and Richard Pollnac

The EBM Feasibility NCEAS working group has three main goals: 1) assessing how to modify governance structures to facilitate effective ecosystem-based management (EBM) in developing and developed world contexts; 2) generating practical ecological and social indicators for EBM, and 3) producing analyses and planning materials useful for scientists, EBM practitioners, and policy makers around the world. It will draw together disparate, socio-ecological datasets from the Philippines, Southwestern Africa, the Caribbean, and Hawaii Island to assess EBM... more
