Work Package IV

Socio-economic consequences of biodiversity change and evaluating adaptation options
Lead: Aalborg University
The aim of this work package is to

  • Establish effects of changing biodiversity and distributions of key commercially important species on the coastal and off-shore business and infrastructure, local communities, indigenous life-style, national government and international relations
  • Assess the ability of management structures and regulatory frameworks to adapt to ecosystem changes and provide recommendations for developing adaptation strategies in relation to the changes in the Arctic ecosystems on both the inshore- and the offshore context
  • Investigate how the fishing fleet adapts to changing conditions and utilise this knowledge to formulate models on how the activity depends on such factors
