An Ocean of Benefits: Using Access Analyses to Inform Governance Responses in a Changing Ocean

This presentation will provide an overview of Ribot and Peluso’s (2003) Theory of Access, including its analytical approach and contributions to understanding the diverse factors that influence the ability of individuals and groups to benefit from resources. This access analysis is brought into conversation with the Canadian Fisheries Research Network’s Fisheries Evaluation Framework through a ‘foresighting’ exercise where scenarios of the future are developed for the development of expanded redfish fishing in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. This portion of the presentation will conclude with remarks on how access analyses can “inform governance responses in a changing ocean”.

ABOUT THE WEBINAR SERIES

The ocean and our relationship to it has undergone several transformations over the last decades, moving rapidly from the once prosperous groundfish fishery to shellfish and pelagics, and now again facing shifts in resource abundance while climate change proceeds amidst uncertain socio-economic scenarios. From taking stock to getting it right, Ocean Frontier Institute’s Research Module I ‘Informing Governance Responses in a Changing Ocean’ aims to understand the consequences of social, ecological, economic and institutional changes for the future of fisheries, coastal communities and the economy of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. In doing so, we also explore options for governments and other governing actors to respond to these changes in order to help achieve sustainable ocean and viable future for fishing communities in the province.

The webinar series ‘Governance in a Changing North Atlantic Ocean’ organized by OFI Module I is a forum for researchers, governments, industries and communities to share knowledge and discuss key governance issues, such as access to fisheries resources and markets, recruitment, training and retention into fisheries, people’s perceptions, values and knowledge of the ocean, marine operational health and safety, vulnerability and viability of coastal communities, indigenous fisheries and fisher’s knowledge of groundfish fisheries. Outputs from the webinar will be used in the preparation of the “Getting It Right” event to be held in 2021.

All webinars will be open to the public and held at noon (Newfoundland time) starting on September 15, 2020. No registration is required. Click on the links below to join the webinars of your choice.

Ocean Frontier Institute's Module I 'Informing Governance Responses in a Changing Ocean' is an interdisciplinary component of a larger collaborative research initiative established in 2016 through funding support from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund. More specifically, OFI Module I research examines the consequences of social, ecological and institutional changes for the future of fisheries, coastal communities and the economy of Newfoundland and Labrador. It also explores alternative options for governments and other governing actors to respond to these changes in order to help achieve a sustainable future.
