Changes in social organizations, economic interactions, and human security are often contingent on dynamic effects facilitated by environmental forces and shifts in governance. However, there is limited knowledge on how well communities (particularly those that play an important interactive role in marine ecosystems and resources) can prosper with global environmental and social challenges while limited transnational governance is already affecting human security in these communities.

Our research aims to advance the theoretical and empirical understanding of the changes in coastal communities’ concerns resulting from the transformations in the global and regional environmental and socio-economic conditions. Ultimately, we aspire to provide scientific and culturally relevant policy solutions for the communities facing environmental and social challenges, including health, safety and poverty to ensure equity and security for all members of society.
