Hello everyone,

I am looking forward to connecting through the SMMR-Net.

I’m Louisa Evans, a marine social scientist based at the University of Exeter and PI of the Sustainable Development and Resilience of Coastal Communities in the UK project (ROCC).

Our project will be using past, present and future approaches to understand and build the resilience of marine resource-users to environmental and regulatory change, and to interrogate the nexus relationships (synergies and trade-offs) between resilience, wellbeing and sustainability. We will be working closely with policy-makers, practitioners and resource-users across diverse sectors: conservation, fisheries, energy, aquaculture and heritage.

Do get in touch if you work on any of these themes / sectors.
