Events - Fisheries and Food Security
The U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization and Duke University are announcing a new partnership to shed new light on small-scale fisheries and to promote applied research to support the implementation of global instruments that promote them.
This 90-minute webinar will showcase the IHH study’s rationale and methods and some of the progress and results so far (approach, country case studies and thematic studies). It includes a moderated round table discussion on how to leverage the methods, information and results from the IHH study towards improved policy decision making and in-country capacity for interdisciplinary data collection and analysis. At the end, audience members will be invited to participate in a Q&A session with the speakers.
This year marks the 20-year anniversary of the essential fish habitat provisions of the Sustainable Fisheries Act. The National Essential Fish Habitat Summit will acknowledge this important milestone by convening council and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration fisheries habitat experts to share ideas and approaches across regions.
Kim Gordon and Katie Latanich, co-directors of the Fisheries Leadership & Sustainability Forum (Fisheries Forum) at the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions, will be among the speakers.
The Nicholas Institute will host a day-long forum—convened in honor of its tenth anniversary—to assess how we can harness big data, cutting-edge technologies, and adaptation research to create science-based, interdisciplinary approaches attuned to the accelerating and dynamic change in the world.
The global fish market is big business—worth a staggering $137.7 billion annually. Management of the world’s fisheries, like many of our precious natural resources, is a challenging and complex system, driven by factors of territory, conservation, culture and revenue.
Join the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and the Ocean Policy Working Group at the Duke University Center for International Studies for a panel discussion focused on the state of fish stocks.
Students, faculty and staff are invited to attend the sixth presentation of the Spring 2011 Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions and UPEP Environmental Institutions Seminar Series. Our speaker will be Dr. Cathy A. Roheim, Professor of Environmental and Natural Resource Economics at the University of Rhode Island.
