Impact So Far
A PhD student has been appointed to review existing work on mangrove functioning, ecosystem services, management practices, aiming to identify key challenges that local communities face to control and maximize mangrove benefits.
Drawing upon existing mangroves knowledge and stakeholders’ preferences, the PhD student will develop, test and analyze different bio-economic models that can help identifying alternatives management and policy options. The student will apply a variety of valuation techniques as well as different econometric approaches to understand the complex relationship between human wellbeing and ecosystem services.
