INCLUSION, SOCIAL JUSTICE AND EQUITY IN URBAN AND RURAL COASTAL COMMUNITIES (WP9)

FOCI’s Work Package on ‘Inclusion, Social Justice and Equity in Urban and Rural Coastal Communities’ carries out research activities to support the design of infrastructures in changing urban and rural coastal communities in ways that are oriented towards inclusion, social justice and equity. This Work Package examines the question, how do we create sustainable coastal communities that are inclusive, safe, just and equitable places to live and work in contexts of climate, ocean and coastal community change? Furthermore, the Work Package is divided into sub-projects that focus on the intersections of ocean and coastal changes with (i) the global and local movement of people, (ii) community responses to existing coastal land and ocean infrastructures, (iii) and fishing livelihoods and our relationship to marine animals and life.
