Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) - CCRES Project
The Capturing Coral Reef and Related Ecosystem Services (CCRES) Project is an interdisciplinary, international partnership project focusing on the East Asia-Pacific region. Project partners include the World Bank, Global Environment Facility, University of Queensland, and multiple other international research, government and NGO partners across the USA, Philippines and Indonesia. Further information on the CCRES Project can be found at http://www.ccres.net.
The CCRES Project's development objective is to design and support the uptake of innovative models for valuing mangrove, seagrass and coral reef ecosystem services with the potential to enhance the sustainability of marine-based enterprise and marine spatial planning in select coastal communities in Indonesia and the Philippines.
The Project seeks to make explicit the value of "blue" natural capital and ecosystem services to coastal communities and other stakeholders in the management of a country's natural assets for sustainable development. Through ecosystem services valuation the Project will demonstrate the fundamental relationships between the ecological value of intact coral reef, seagrass and mangrove ecosystems and the economic value and market potential of their ecosystem services, how these are tied to healthy, resilient systems and the routine distribution of economic benefits that can bring transformational change in sustaining the welfare of coastal communities.
By making the connections to values and benefits explicit, CCRES will demonstrate the fundamental links between - and the need to maintain and conserve - the elements of biological community structure and function with the economic benefits derived from the ecosystem service The Project will forge community-led innovations in capturing and sustaining these benefits by generating model frameworks for eco-business development (or by strengthening the value chains ui: existing eco-businesses) to better highlight and harvest the values accruing from the ecosystems on which their business success depends. CCRES will also promote the application and uptake of these model approaches in local planning frameworks.
To support research and other contracted activities carried out by Capturing Coral Reef and Related Ecosystem Services (CCRES) Project.
