Transformative adaptation towards ocean equity

Project description

Understanding inequality in society from ocean stressors

According to the United Nations, inequality is a defining challenge of the 21st century that impacts the well-being of people around the world. The oceans play an important part in this as they provide food, jobs, and space for recreation, amongst other vital things. With a focus on ocean equity, the EU-funded EQUALSEA project will shed light on how certain ocean stressors, such as climate change and the loss of biodiversity, affect marine protected areas and coastal communities and the impact of this on society. The project's work will analyse how transformative changes can be fostered to deal with ocean inequalities, and advance research in this field.
