Marine Socio-Ecological Systems Symposium

MSEAS

Marine Socio-Ecological Systems: Navigating global change in the marine environment 3-7 June 2024 Yokohama, Japan
​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​MSEAS 2024 symposium will focus on the integrated assessment of multiple ocean uses across sectors, including: fisheries, renewable energy, coastal development, oil and gas, transport, and the need for conservation. Emphasis will be on the methodological and empirical challenges involved in including the human dimensions in integrated ecosystem assessments. Understanding these complex social-ecological systems is a challenging new area of research that combines multidisciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary components. The integrated marine focus is relatively new, as previous research efforts have either been terrestrially focused or dealt primarily with single sectors. MSEAS 2024 is endorsed as an official activity of the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development UNDOS.​
