ES005:
Transdisciplinary research to assess marine socio-ecological systems


Session ID#: 28595

Session Description:
Marine socio-ecological systems is a challenging new area of research that combines expertise across a range of disciplines. Understanding them is necessary to manage the triple bottom line, develop integrated assessments, and explicitly show  the trade-offs between different ecological, economic, social, cultural and institutional objectives. The focus of this session is on the methodological and empirical challenges involved in including human dimensions in integrated ecosystem assessments. These challenges also involve the development of research projects (co-design) and carrying them out (co-production).

This session consists of a set of presentations (max. 15 minutes per talk including discussion), highlighting different aspects of integrated ecosystem assessments, transdisciplinary research and the development of tools. We specifically invite the presentation of case studies on posters with a poster elevator pitch (max. 2 minutes) in the session. The outcome should be a short and concise session report with best practices and case studies.
