    Adapting to Global Changes in Oceans and Fisheries
  •  
  • This lecture presents a framework for identifying the dependencies (co-benefits) and hindrances (trade-offs) among path-dependent relationships. This framework was used to characterize the contributions of the ocean sustainability targets to other Sustainable Development Goal targets.

    The state of global oceans limits the potential to achieve far-reaching sustainability, yet this is currently the Sustainable Development Goal with the least identified progress, and has received the least financial support. The framework presented in this lecture can be used to explore relationships among other Sustainable Development Goal targets or similar multi-goal policies, and can be modified to specific contexts (such as national or regional scales). In particular, this framework allows for an understanding of the prevalence of positive versus negative relationships between ocean sustainability and other Sustainable Development Goals.
