Abstract
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 success as measured by common social and ecological goals of various programs. These results will result in synthetic peer reviewed journal articles and form the basis for an empirically-based how-to guidebook and training program to support coastal EBM.
