Wildlife Conservation Society - Grant
Development, assessment and analysis of socio-economic indicators to support a global coral reef fisheries monitoring program in an impact evaluation framework
- Indicative Funding
- Despite the prevalence and planned expansion of marine protected areas globally, understanding of the socioeconomic impacts of these tools is limited. The overarching focus of this project is to improve understanding of how marine protected areas and other marine management tools affect associated human communities. This research will be undertaken in collaboration with the Wildlife Conservation Society, and has two key objectives: 1) to develop a framework for socioeconomic impact evaluation to be applied to global coral reef fisheries monitoring; and 2) to assess the socioeconomic impacts of various marine management tools, including elucidating mechanisms through which impacts occur.
