SNAPP: Planning for the impacts of land-­uses on coral reef fisheries and livelihoods under different climate scenarios

Principal Investigators:

Carissa J. Klein, Christopher J. Brown, and Hugh P. Possingham

About half of the world’s population lives near the sea. An increase in coastal population and economic development (e.g., agriculture, fishing) has led to increased pressures on coastal and marine natural resources. This problem is pervasive across the globe, with examples from developed nations like Australia where human activities have caused a 20-50% decline in coral cover on the Great Barrier Reef over the past two decades, to developing nations like India where over 40% of mangroves have been converted to agriculture or urban development.... more
