    Författare :Maricela de la Torre-Castro; Nils Kautsky; Carl Folke; Patrik Rönnbäck; Edward H. Allison; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :seagrasses; social-ecological systems; institutions; seaweed farming; artisanal fisheries; common-pool resources; natural resource management; Zanzibar; Tanzania; East Africa; Western Indian Ocean;

    Sammanfattning : The present study is one of the first attempts to analyze the societal importance of seagrasses (marine flowering plants) from a Natural Resource Management perspective, using a social-ecological systems (SES) approach. The interdisciplinary study takes place in East Africa (Western Indian Ocean, WIO) and includes in-depth studies in Chwaka Bay, Zanzibar, Tanzania. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Multi-level Interactions between Fisheries and Trade : Modeling intertwined social-ecological systems

    Sammanfattning : Sustainable and equitable fisheries are central for addressing the challenges of the UN Sustainable Development Goal 14: Life Below Water. International trade, once presented by Walrasian economists as a panacea for fisheries development, has not markedly decreased poverty and has been related to the overexploitation of marine species.

    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Social-ecological; systems; ecosystem services; bundles; human well-being; mapping; South Africa; vetenskap om hållbar utveckling; Sustainability Science;

    Sammanfattning : It has become increasingly clear that dealing with present day environmental crises requires a holistic view that takes into account the interactions of social and ecological factors across multiple spatial and temporal scales. An example of where this new paradigm is being operationalized is the study of social-ecological systems. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Nurturing resilience in social-ecological systems : Lessons learned from bridging organizations

    Författare :Lisen Schultz; Carl Folke; Ryan Plummer; Stockholms universitet; []
