The price of fish in Kenyan value chains is not as straightforward as people think

Caroline explains the scenarios (photo by Diego Galafassi) Research team member Caroline Abunge at a meeting with a mixed group of fishers and traders introduces one of four future scenarios. These scenarios demonstrated tradeoffs by exploring how different groups of people might fare better or worse under different possible futures.

New paper from SPACES team members reveals ‘taboo tradeoffs’ that challenge the management of ecosystem services, and lays the ground for SPACES research

The Sustainable Poverty Alleviation from Coastal Ecosystem Services project (SPACES) is supported by the UK Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA) program to study the relationship between coastal ecosystems in Kenya and Mozambique and the wellbeing of poor people living along the coast. The project started in September 2013.

Dominique D’Emille, a research assistant at Universidade Eduardo Mondlane summarizes the SPACES project.
