SPACES

O projeto Sustainable Poverty Alleviation from Coastal Ecosystem Services (SPACES) é apoiado pelo programa UK Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA) para estudar a relação entre os ecossistemas costeiros no Quênia e Moçambique eo bem-estar das pessoas pobres que vivem ao longo da costa. O projeto começou em setembro de 2013.

Dominique D’Emille, um assistente de pesquisa na Universidade Eduardo Mondlane resume o projeto SPACES.

UK Ecosystem Services for Poverty Alleviation (ESPA)

SPACES é uma colaboração entre Stockholm Resilience CentreExeter UniversityKenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute (KMFRI)Wildlife Conservation Society (WCS)Kenya Forestry Institute (KEFRI)Eduardo Mondlane University, e uma série de outras instituições do Quénia, Moçambique, Reino Unido e América do Norte. No Quênia SPACES irá colaborar com KCDP, Quênia Departamento de Pesca, PNUD, PNUMA, unidades locais de gestão de praia (BMus) e associações florestais comunidade (CFAs) e governo local e regional.

SPACES publication: Men and women use, experience and value coastal ecosystem services differently

In this latest publication, Matt Fortnam and coauthors from the SPACES team compiled evidence from across the SPACES datasets to illustrate how people’s engagement with ecosystem services are fundamentally gendered…

Abstract:

This article assesses the extent to which our conceptualisation, understanding and empirical analysis of ecosystem services are inherently gendered; in other words, how they might be biased and unbalanced in terms of their […]

New Publication: Assessing Basic Human Needs to prevent serious harm

The methodology used to explore whether people meet their basic human needs is presented and discussed in this new paper. The paper proposes this as a way to monitor the impact of conservation actions on people to prevent serious harm.

New Publication: Kenyan and Mozambican coral reef ‘carbonate budgets’ contribute to international picture of corals under sea-level rise.

SPACES coral reef surveys have contributed to an international picture of how reefs might be able to grow to keep up with sea-level rise, recently published in Nature.

The growth of coral reefs is strongly influenced by the amount and types of coral living on the reef surface, but across both regions this growth is now being hampered by combinations of coral disease, deteriorating water quality and fishing pressure, along with severe impacts from “coral bleaching” caused by climate change. By counting the organisms responsible for building up and eroding reefs, SPACES team members Chris Perry and Fraser Januchowski-Hartley have been able to calculate the ‘carbonate budget’ and estimate how quickly reefs can grow towards the surface (the ‘accretion rate’).

In the figure below, the Mozambican (17) and Kenyan (18) SPACES sites can be seen in comparison to reefs from around the Indian ocean and Western Atlantic. The poorest reefs in […]
