The International Ocean Institute (IOI) has awarded Dr Stefano Moncada the 2016-17 Elisabeth Mann Borgese Bursary to carry out research entitled ‘Climate Coping Strategies, Economic Wellbeing and Sustainability in Vulnerable Coastal Communities’.

Dr Moncada’s research aims to identify coping strategies adopted in reaction to climate variability and change, and to discuss their implications for economic wellbeing and for long-term sustainability.

She will investigate this in the context of vulnerable coastal communities in small islands, supporting research and teaching activities bet­ween the national and regional centres working in the field of sustainable uses of ocean resources.

The 2015 edition of the bursary had been awarded to Kristina Edwards who carried out research on the effects of micro­plastics exposure on marine life with particular reference to the central Mediterranean.
