Reconciling Multiple Demands in Coastal Zones
   

 

Coastal areas are one of the most challenging ecosystems for management due to the diversity, complexity, dynamics and vulnerability of the natural and social systems that characterize them. Consequently, management goals aiming to balance resource sustainability, economic efficiency and social equity are often not met. This research examines whether and how multiple demands in coastal areas can be reconciled.  The Coastal Transects Analysis Model, a simple visualization and decision-support tool, will be used to analyze interactions and flows between natural and human systems, with current emphasis on fisheries and aquatic resources.
