What futures for fisheries production systems in West Africa? Development of scenarios for adaptation to climate change
Goal: 1. Identify the key features of fisheries productions systems in West Africa as well as drivers of change with a focus on Senegal, Mauritania and Ghana 2.Identify the impact of climate variability and change on these systems 3. Identify how fisheries productions systems are likely to respond to future changes under different climate change, population change, trade patterns, economic and policy scenarios. 4. Provide decision support system tools for national and regional decision makers; explore alternative adaptation strategies, foster knowledge-sharing and dialogue across countries and between science and policy. Purpose: The ZMT is interested in gaining knowledge on the impact of climate change on fisheries production systems and on the impact of climate variability on Large Marine Ecosystems. It will profit from its experiences in governance and regional development research as well as climate change. The WFC seeks to achieve a better understanding of how climate change, taking into account alternative development paths and governance systems, will affect fisheries production systems in order to assist decision-makers in devising policy strategies and adaptation planning. Project activities will build on current research conducted by the WFC on changes in trade patterns and demand and supply, and on the resilience of fisherfolk livelihoods in West Africa. The project will also be linked to other scenarios initiatives at the regional and the global scale.
