Resilience: Increasing resilience in fishing communities to impacts of COVID-19 in northern Peru.
The project aims to increase the socio-economic resilience of artisanal fishing communities in northern Peru to impacts of COVID-19. In this way, it aims to generate updated information on the impacts of the pandemic in fishing communities, that will support decision-making by communities, the government and wider society and the design of strategies to reactivating the seafood value chains while minimizing health risks.
Protecting Covid-hit fishing communities in Peru
Dr. Tania Mendo’s project has been awarded with £297,163 from the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), through the UK Government’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) and the Newton Fund. This project aims to help protect the livelihoods of fishing communities in Peru hit by Covid-19 which will help address the urgent need to understand the impacts of Covid-19 on fishing dependent communities and to develop strategies to reactivate the seafood supply chain whilst minimising further Covid-19 infections.
Developing a strategic research agenda for sustainable artisanal fisheries in northern Peru: identifying research and innovation gaps
This project focuses on defining key research, innovation and capacity building requirements needed to underpin the development of a regional fisheries management strategy for northern Peru. These requirements will be co-designed through a participatory process with all stakeholders to identify critical factors limiting the sustainable development of this sector taking into account the entire value chain.
Fingerprinting ‘El Nino Costero’: A unique opportunity to document the signature of an extreme flood event in northern Peru
The project done by PI Andrew Henderson, CoI Nina Laurie and CoI Neil Ross is based on a unique opportunity to quantify and determine the dynamics and evolution of a large magnitude flood, and to use its sedimentary signature, coupled to climatological data over the last 120 years, to unequivocally fingerprint and calibrate past El Niño-type events in recent lake sediments.
Project by Tania Mendo that looks to protect the biodiversity and endangered, threatened, protected species with the help of observers and fishermen who participate in the recollection of spatial-temporal information during their fishing activities through a mobile phone app
Nina Laurie and Tania Mendo’s project that focuses on defining the key research, innovation and capacity building requirements necessary to consolidate the development of a regional fisheries management strategy for northern Peru.
