Abstract: 

CHE is not a particular theory or a single approach but a collection of lines of research that address human-environmental interactions in coastal and marine systems at the local scale and through long-term fieldwork.  More specifically, CHE is the study of how humans adapt (biologically, cognitively, culturally) and transform (ecologically, socioeconomically, and politically) coastal and nearshore marine environments. The relevance of CHE for marine resource management and conservation is discussed in this seminar.
