Staff possess expertise in partnership building, facilitation and stakeholder engagement and analysis; and extensive experience in processes associated with issue identification and strategy/plan formulation within coastal and marine environments. Establishing methods for stakeholder interaction, as well as participatory processes, which contribute to improved planning and management at local, regional and national scales, is a key strength. This involves working with people and technology in order to identify appropriate means to plan and manage a maritime economy in a sustainable way within a dynamic environment.
Staff members also contribute to under- and post-graduate teaching in natural and social science disciplines. Outputs of the Group range from peer reviewed scientific papers and tailored guidance documentation for practitioners, to materials that support existing policy, or development of policy.
