Fisheries and Conflict

The world's fisheries are the main source of protein for one billion people and provide income for over 43.5 million, of which 95 percent live in developing countries. A collaboration with Dr. Sarah Glaser, Secure Fisheries, and One Earth Future, this project aims to quantify the impacts of civil conflict on fish catch, the feedbacks between aquatic population dynamics, local markets, and food security, and model developing country fisheries as coupled natural human systems.

Project Partners

This research is done in collaboration with Secure Fisheries and One Earth Future (OEF).

Secure Fisheries is a program of One Earth Future, a privately funded and independent operating foundation. One Earth Future provides active operational, research, and strategic support to its programs, allowing them to focus deeply on complex problems and create positive alternatives to conflict.

One Earth Future catalyzes networks to solve complex problems at the root of armed conflict. Through its unique culture of iterative learning and improvement, One Earth Future designs, tests, and partners to scale programs that work with communities to see problems in new ways and solve them collaboratively.
