SI21A:
Sustaining Ocean Services in Socioecological Systems: Challenges, Opportunities, and Perspectives in Resilience Science and Natural Resource Management I

Session ID#: 93011

Session Description:
The World's oceans are experiencing unprecedented change in physical, chemical, and biological variables since more than half a century ago. This change has an associated response in the sustainability of ocean services, which in turn requires monitoring and enhanced understanding to better inform resource management decisions. Consequently, there has been an exponential increase in research of socio-ecological systems and their resilience to stressors and anthropogenic drivers. Within this scope, this session welcomes presentations including interactions or linkages between social elements and interdisciplinary ocean science, with emphasis on coastal areas where human presence is likely to generate socio-ecological synergies. Specific topics to be considered include, but are not limited to, human dimensions of interdisciplinary oceanographic research, offshore energy and marine minerals, commercial fishing, tourism and recreation, marine archaeology, ocean governance, ecosystem management, conflict avoidance and mitigation, and traditional knowledge. Also, of interest are presentations describing and discussing conceptual models and management frameworks addressing socio-ecological resilience issues. Case studies where science and stakeholder input inform resource management decisions, are relevant as well.
