PUBLIC LECTURE: Public Lecture - Dr Tim McClanahan
Title: Addressing the social-ecological values gap.
Addressing the social-ecological values gap - Can we find fisheries management solutions that work for people and nature?
The call for expanding social-ecological science and metrics for sustainability
will require resolving and implementing the issues around the values, desires, and norms of management participants.
The theory of values being illuminated by environmental psychologists and public policy academics have merged into a useful framework where worldviews are seen to influence and compete for control of social norms and actions.
In this lecture, Tim will discuss the current incentives and approaches to
solving problems among academics and managers and juxtapose this with the
social-ecological problems and needs of artisanal fisheries in the Indian Ocean and how efforts can be better resolved and integrated. He recommends a more permissive approach to values and management options and more focus on directly asking people what they want in management, less focus on social-ecological causation, and more focus on the outcomes of management
