Marine fish stocks are in many cases extracted above sustainable levels, but they may be protected through restricted-use zoning systems. The effectiveness of these systems typically depends on support from coastal fishing communities. High management costs including those of enforcement may, however, deter fishers from supporting marine management. We(More)
Decision support tools that aim to assist efficient integrated water resources management should integrate the multiple, interdependent uses of water. There exist, however, few models that assess the trade-offs between environmental and socioeconomic impacts of water management changes in an integrated framework. This paper presents a model that integrates(More)
This study reviewed 62 economic analyses published between 1995 and 2014 on the economic impacts of policies that incentivise agricultural greenhouse (GHG) mitigation. Typically, biophysical models are used to evaluate the changes in GHG mitigation that result from landholders changing their farm and land management practices. The estimated results of(More)
Globally, agriculture is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. The environment (e.g., soils and climate) and management influence agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and the potential to reduce emissions. For agriculture to contribute to greenhouse gas abatement in the long term, it is important to identify low-cost mitigation actions(More)
Natural resource management (NRM) typically involves complex decision problems that affect a wide variety of stakeholder values. More efficient NRM that seeks enhanced environmental, social and financial net benefits necessitates assessments of the environmental impacts, and costs and benefits of management investments in an integrated manner.
