The research team
Colette C.C. Wabnitz
Colette draws on over 15 years of international experience focused broadly on managing biodiversity risk and achieving positive outcomes across the three pillars of sustainability: society, the economy and the environment. Her areas of practice include small-scale fisheries; climate change; food and nutritional security; ecosystem approaches to policy; illegal fisheries and forced labor; sustainable development; marine genetic resources; ocean finance; ecosystem modelling and equity with a particular focus on developing economies.
Kanae leads the Coastal and Marine Economics Lab at the Gulf of Maine Research Institute. She is an Associate Research Scientist in Coastal and Marine Resource Economics. In her research, she uses various research methods, including bioeconomic modeling, econometrics, surveys, and interviews, to approach coastal and marine resource management issues. She is primarily interested in understanding efficiency, efficacy, and stability of various fisheries management institutions, and how they may be impacted by climate change and other environmental changes.
Jean-Baptiste is a postdoctoral researcher at the Stockholm Resilience Centre at Stockholm University. His research focuses on the interlinked social, economic and ecological challenges that shape the new global ocean context – exploring what the Anthropocene means for the ocean, what it entails for how we study marine social-ecological systems and, essentially, what can be done to improve sustainability.
Robert is a researcher at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, where he focuses on aspects of international cooperation, the sustainable management of ocean resources, and ocean stewardship. His recent work has focused on the international negotiations around biodiversity in areas beyond national jurisdiction (BBNJ), particularly with regard to marine genetic resources.
Albert is head of Knowledge and Evidence at the Global Resilience Partnership, and a researcher at the Stockholm Resilience Centre. His research focus is broad, and includes work on exploring the dynamics contributing to the reliable production of ecosystem services, developing a suite of alternative, plausible scenarios of “Good Anthropocenes”, and multiple projects focusing on marine social-ecological systems and their futures in the Anthropocene.
