Abstract:The success of resource management is ultimately dependent on the community's understanding of their impact on that resource and on the systems that affect those resources. This project engages every level of a community in understanding adjacent systems on which they depend. This will allow them to become competent participants in land use decisions ultimately affecting fragile marine ecosystems, in particular mangroves, sea grass beds and coral reefs.
