INTRODUCTION

Climate change is a global phenomenon with wide-reaching impacts, but vulnerable communities feel its effects most acutely. These communities, often characterized by low income, limited access to resources, and marginalization, face disproportionate risks and challenges as they confront the changing climate. From coastal regions experiencing rising sea levels to arid zones suffering from prolonged droughts, the adverse effects of climate change are already causing significant disruptions to livelihoods, health, and overall well-being. The need for adaptive strategies that empower these vulnerable communities is both urgent and critical.

INTRODUCTION

Provisions for their legislature.

A convention, in the sense of a meeting, is a gathering of individuals who meet at an arranged place and time in order to discuss or engage in some common interest. The most common conventions are based upon industry, profession, and fandom. Trade conventions typically focus on a particular industry or industry segment, and feature keynote speakers, vendor displays, and other information and activities of interest to the event organizers and attendees.

Sebastian Ferse (GERMAN) Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research, former FEC Executive Director

Sebastian’s work addresses the link between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning in coral reefs as well as human usage of coral reef resources. Sebastian was FEC Executive Director at ZMT in Bremen, Germany, until January 2022.

Using an approach that combines assessments of both taxonomic and functional diversity in reef systems, he aims for a better understanding of the impacts of both natural and anthropogenic changes in coral reefs

In examining coastal livelihoods, institutions and mariculture techniques, he is trying to gather insights into options for sustainable resources uses and into strategies for the development, implementation and improvement of these uses.

Dr. Maiko NishiMaiko Nishi is a Research Fellow for the International Satoyama Initiative at UNU-IAS

Her area of research interest includes social-ecological system governance, local and regional planning, and agricultural land policy. In particular, her interest lies in the notions of multi-level governance, land tenure and use, and perspectives and subjectivities of institutional actors in the processes of governing natural resources.

Dr. Nishi began her career as a consultant in urban planning in Japan, and experienced both overseas and domestic projects including those related to participatory planning, rural water supply, and regional development. She was also engaged in several research and assessment activities as a coordinator to follow up the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, including a multi-stakeholder assessment on the interaction between humans and ecosystems in Japan.
