This sub-project examines how marine and coastal governance can be advanced to address trade-offs and resolve conflicts between various uses, users and values.

With a focus on the management of conflicts in coastal/marine biosphere reserves linked to the UNESCO Man and Biosphere (MAB) programme, the research will study how biospheres interact with wider multi-level and multi-sector governance arrangements such as marine spatial planning.
