Centre for Coastal Science and Management, Simon Fraser University

The Centre for Coastal Science and Management is in the Faculty of Environment at Simon Fraser University and works in close partnership with the Faculty of Science and other faculties at SFU. It promotes interdisciplinary research, education and dialogue on Canada’s coastal freshwater and marine ecosystems, particularly those in British Columbia.  By linking social and  natural science with local knowledge, the Centre focuses on:
1) coastal and marine conservation,
2) adaptation to climate change,
3) building resource management capacity and policy (government, community, academic), and
4) science-based policy and management decisions in Canada.

By concentrating on critical issues of local, regional and global significance, members of the Centre and their partners seek solutions for a diversity of complex problems and communicate their findings to the public and governments at all levels.  

The Centre is unique in Canada because of this interdisciplinary approach linking natural and social science with local knowledges and engaging communities in research and dialogue.
