Visible to the public Systems Thinking for Research ON Geography-based Coastal Food Energy Water Systems (Strong Coasts).pptx

With 40% of the world's population residing within 100 kilometers of a coast, these environments are critical to local and global economies. Human activity related to the generation and use of food, energy and water has been linked to impacts such as nitrogen pollution that degrades the quality of coastal waters. This degradation affects reef ecosystems, fisheries, and people's economic livelihoods and health. Replenishment requires innovative systems thinking and better consideration of the way food, energy, and water systems are integrated in terrestrial and coastal environments.
