RECONCILING COMPETING OBJECTIVES FOR THE DESIGN OF MARINE RESERVE NETWORKS - BIODIVERSITY, FOOD SECURITY, AND LOCAL EQUITY BENEFITS
Grant number: LP120200245 | Funding period: 2013 - 2015
This project uses a decision-theoretic framework to balance the often conflicting marine conservation objectives of preserving biodiversity and building food security for local communities in the socially and ecologically complex region of the Coral Triangle. A new reserve design will boost biodiversity conservation and better support livelihoods.
