Predicting Future Oceans: Sustainability of Ocean and Human Systems Amidst Global Environmental Change provides a synthesis of our knowledge of the future state of the oceans. The editors undertake the challenge of integrating diverse perspectives-from oceanography to anthropology-to exhibit the changes in ecological conditions and their socioeconomic implications. Each contributing author provides a novel perspective, with the book as a whole collating scholarly understandings of future oceans and coastal communities across the world. The diverse perspectives, syntheses and state-of-the-art natural and social sciences contributions are led by past and current research fellows and principal investigators of the Nereus Program network.

This includes members at 17 leading research institutes, addressing themes such as oceanography, biodiversity, fisheries, mariculture production, economics, pollution, public health and marine policy.

This book is a comprehensive resource for senior undergraduate and postgraduate readers studying social and natural science, as well as practitioners working in the field of natural resources management and marine conservation.

  • Provides a synthesis of our knowledge on the future state of the oceans
  • Includes recommendations on how to move forwards
  • Highlights key social aspects linked to ocean ecosystems, including health, equity and sovereignty

"This valuable book examines the changing ocean in the context of both environment and human society with the goal of framing how coastal and marine systems can survive. Many of us in the ocean conservation community have been saying we need to change the human relationship with the ocean for greater sustainability. What is useful is this book's attempt to make the leap to predictions that take these biophysical changes, adaptation by humans, and a myriad of other factors into account in order to "see how to get to the best possible future. Rather than predict doom, the volume strives to define a better relationship between human societies and the ocean, based on sustainability and equity. The challenge will be to redesign ocean governance for true sustainability at subnational, national, inter-governmental, and regional, as well as international levels-in the context of unprecedented and unpredictable global change in ocean systems. Meeting these challengeswill require changes of similar magnitude in governance including substantially increased accountability, transparency, and equity in the distribution of costs and benefits to be legitimate and successful. Such equity, and thus sustainability, must be intergenerational, local, and global-and this well-designed and well-written book helps us understand how we got here and where we can go." --The Quarterly Review of Biology

Övrig information

Dr. William Cheung is Associate Professor in the Institute for the Oceans and Fisheries at the University of British Columbia, and Director (Science) of the Nippon Foundation-UBC Nereus Program. He is an internationally-recognized expert in the effects of climate change on marine ecosystems and fisheries, and is a lead author for the Fifth Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and coordinating lead author for the IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in the Changing Climate. Dr. Cheung has published over 100 peer-reviewed articles, and is the 2017 laureate of the Prix'd Excellence Award of the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas for his contributions to marine sciences. Dr. Yoshitaka Ota is Research Assistant Professor in the School of Marine and Environmental Affairs at the University of Washington, and Director (Policy) of the Nippon Foundation-UBC Nereus Program. Yoshitaka Ota has a background in social anthropology at the University College London. Dr. Ota has conducted ethnographic research on various coastal communities, including Palau, UK, Indonesia and Japan, studying the socialization and cultural meanings associated with fishing practices. For the last ten years, he has been engaged in policy research involving coastal indigenous communities, marine spatial planning and human security. Dr. Ota also is the Director (Policy) of the Nippon Foundation Nereus Program, an international initiative comprising an interdisciplinary team of 20 institutes. His core research interest is to understand how to strengthen social equity in ocean governance while we face global environmental changes. His unit consists of a team of cross-disciplinary scholars. Dr. Andrs Cisneros-Montemayor is a marine resource economist specializing in complex social-ecological systems, particularly in developing regions. This includes estimating the social and economic benefits of ecotourism and artisanal fisheries, anticipating ecological and social impacts and challenges, and finding best strategies to achieve equitable and inclusive sustainable development.
