8 What will CCRES do? Mission: To engage government and coastal communities in bringing whole-of-system thinking to the design of local economies founded on a mutually reinforcing relationship between ecosystem health and economic performance This gives a material rationale for decision-makers to sustain coastal ecosystems and the locally-accrued benefits that they contribute to human wellbeing and prosperity

9 What challenge is CCRES addressing?
Discounting the future Limited understanding of trade-offs Lack of business acumen and innovation

10 Challenge: In coastal communities, local businesses frequently degrade the natural resources on which they rely At the same time, alternative livelihoods schemes rarely succeed in becoming financially self-sustaining, often set up by those with little or no business expertise, making supply-driven products that do not consider demand or market access Both problems stem from ignoring the value chain that extends from the natural resource, via the producer, all the way to the end-consumer.

11 So CCRES: Targets Investigations to quantify, model, clarify and map ES role & value and inform local communities (and Government) Integrates ES information with business practices---assessed to strengthen those practices & their value chains from the resource base to the consumer Targets communication & ownership—seeking +Δ in routine practice & behavior

12 Project Components C.3 Engaging, persuading, enabling
Dissemination & outreach C.3 Engaging, persuading, enabling Local Community and Government Norms, attitudes, policy Livelihoods, food security C.2 Integrating, securing, monetising Business Enterprises Environmental Impacts ± C.1 Natural Capital Measuring, valuing, mapping Ecosystem services

13 Component I “Quantifying the value and market potential of coral reef and mangrove ecosystem services” Objective: To provide CCRES technical input on economic, social, natural and management science “Measuring, valuing and mapping”

14 Measuring Ecosystem Services
Targeted Investigations fill information gaps on the roles that ES play in a specific community Coastal protection Fisheries Tourism Carbon sequestration

15 “What is the value of a management action relative to cost?”
Ecosystem Service Benefits: Effect of reef health on fisheries productivity “What is the value of a management action relative to cost?” Productive Degraded

16 Why value ecosystem services?
National wealth accounts (alongside other forms of capital, e.g., minerals, human, agriculture) Local stakeholders better understand how a change in ecosystem health affects their daily lives Incorporate value into Marine Spatial Planning to improve benefits to people and reduce conflict

17 Effects of governance on the flow of ecosystem service benefits
“Who gets what, and why?”

18 Reconciling trade-offs among ecosystem services
“How do we get optimal outcomes for multiple objectives?” Marine Spatial Planning

20 “Integrating, balancing and securing”
Component II “Forging community-led innovation in capturing and sustaining benefits from ecosystem service values and enhancing resilience in the face of climate change” Objective: To provide expertise in business innovation, management science and complex systems analysis “Integrating, balancing and securing”

22 Activities Understand current systems Business development
Current & external businesses Inventory “eco-businesses” Business development Assess existing & potential eco-business for triple bottom line performance Decision Toolkit development Undertake evaluation of the current business environment Assess external business environment Create an inventory of potential coastal eco-businesses whose success has been demonstrated elsewhere (e.g eco-tourism, mariculture – for food and aquarium trade, ecosystem restoration initiatives) Assess existing and potential eco-businesses at pilot sites Assess triple bottom line performance of existing and potential eco-businesses Identify opportunities to improve performance of existing businesses using Component 1 expertise Conduct participatory systems analysis to assess eco-business scenarios Investigate potential for synergies, conflicts and perverse outcomes within eco-business suites Create scenarios to feed into Marine Spatial Planning process under Component 1 Identify skills training needs that exist within pilot site communities Piloting eco-business models and generalising lessons learned Work with local communities to operationalise eco-business models Generalise knowledge created by CCRES Create knowledge products that allow communities to operationalise ecosystem service based economies

23 Component III “Promoting behavioural change through outreach, decision support and regional learning” Objective: To provide expertise in communications, value systems, policy, engagement and outreach “Engaging, persuading, and enabling”

24 Integration Survey development & application Values analysis
Component III Integration Survey development & application Values analysis Social network analysis Policy and governance impact
