Climate change, Artisanal Fisheries and Human Dimension


The focal point of this project is to achieve an understanding of the impact of climate change on fisheries, fisher folk and regional/local society and also to support the definition of strategies which mitigate socioeconomic impacts resulting of such global changes. To do so, we focus on the case study of shrimp fisheries in the Patos Lagoon estuary, Southern Brazil. This study fosters a productive multinational and multidisciplinary collaboration involving two institutions (FURG/Brazil and UBC/Canada) and IAI member countries (Argentina, Brazil, Canada and Uruguay).
