Description

This report presents the outcomes of the Ecological Risk Assessment of Impacts of Climate Change on Fisheries and Aquaculture Resources workshop held from 25-27 October 2017 in Lima, Peru.

The workshop aimed to:

  1. To raise awareness through objective, flexible and cost-effective ecological risk assessment tools that will be used to prioritize future research and management investment for developing adaptation responses to climate change.
  2. Socialize participants’ local experience with different specialist and non-specialist stakeholders in the Asia-Pacific region, benefiting researchers of public, private and academic entities.
  3. Increase knowledge about environmental parameters that determine potential impacts of climate change, and about life-history stages, habitats, fisheries and aquaculture resources that are more vulnerable to climate change.
