CEMarin invites the scientific community to reflect on the immediate impacts caused by the recent cyclonic events on the Archipelago-Seaflower Biosphere Reserve, and to propose future visions for sustainable development considering the resilience to them. Therefore, we open this call for chapters in an open access book containing technical and scientific tools for the reconstruction and sustainable socioeconomic development
of the Archipelago.
1. GENERAL AIM
To contribute to an international and interdisciplinary open access book that establishes a scientifically-based conceptual framework for an efficient Climate Change adaptation and mitigation in the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve. The publication will cover all relevant fields of marine sciences (biology, ecology, engineering, climatology, social sciences, bioeconomy, etc.), for the assessment of impacts, the current situation and future challenges for urban, rural and regional planning and for risk management, aimed at adaptation to climate change. This also includes the socio-economic development based on resilience, multiculturalism, dialogue of knowledge and the sustainable use of ecosystem services of the Archipelago. Types of book chapters include original research, opinion papers and reviews. The latter type is especially welcome.
