Just out: Two articles emanating from IMBER OSC 

25 Mar 2021 - 12:45


Frontiers in Marine Science has been the journal of choice for publications from the IMBER Open Science Conference in Brest in June 2019. We've just got two articles out! 

Astrid has been part of a powerful team looking at the relative merits of the various system-based approaches to management of human activities in the oceans (such as EAF) and suggesting to create “quilts of sustainable ocean governance".

Louise has published the overarching approach behind her PhD research in a suite of papers from the IMBER OSC highlighting the work of early career researchers. Developing methodology for the implementation of the EAF in South Africa, she shows how carefully facilitated structured decision making tools can help with a scenario-based approach to change management in a disadvantaged fishing community. Since scenarios are routinely applied at very large scales (e.g., IPCC and IPBES, as well as nationally in South Africa), Louise then argues that scenario-based approaches can contribute to help adaptation and transformation across scales from community to international.
