Marine Conservation Evidence and Synthesis (Duke Bass Connections)

Building on the work of previous teams, this project team will refine and develop evidence maps and related products in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund and the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation at the American Museum of Natural History. 

Team members will conduct evidence mapping and reviews, evaluating what natural and social science research reveals about the nature of linkages between conservation interventions (such as catch limits and restoration) and both natural and social outcomes (fish abundance, ecosystem health and resilience; income and well-being). The team will also assess the strength of the evidence supporting these linkages, and focus on particular intervention types where significant knowledge gaps exist or are particularly relevant to policy. These could include fisheries and food security outcomes from conservation.
