SARDINHA2020: An ecosystem approach to sardine fisheries management

This project combines the efforts of a large group of scientists with the final aim of delivering a Management Plan for the Portuguese purse-seiner fishery. The main task to be developed by Nova SBE Environmental Economics Knowledge Center is to develop a bioeconomic model for this fleet. By doing this project aims at contributing to integrate economics into fishery policy advice further. In particular, the bioeconomic model will be used to derive harvest control rules that endogenously capture economic aspects while using a population model framework based on most fish stock assessments and fishery management plans. Building upon the project's results, the bioeconomic model will be extended to account for interactions between species and environmental impacts on targeted fish populations. By doing so, we also aim to contribute to fostering the use of an ecosystem approach tofisheries management.

Buying and selling carbon credits from nature, a good deal to support biodiversity conservation and restoration efforts?

The use of carbon credits from nature to finance conservation and restoration efforts are growing. This approach holds incredible potential, on paper, but has major challenges to overcome — our MSc. Student Pierre-Guillaume Amiel explores this further in this article. Maze-Impact is a venture by Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Nova SBE's corporate partner.
