The focus of the symposium will be on integration and assessment across multiple ocean uses and sectors, including: fisheries, renewable energy, coastal development, oil and gas, transport, and conservation.
There will be a particular emphasis on the methodological and empirical challenges involved in including human dimensions in integrated ecosystem assessments.
The symposium will be global in scope, with a focus on regions in which integrated ocean management policies have been developing in the last two decades.
