Research on Human Dimensions to Inform Restoration Monitoring

Scientists from the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) and the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, presented a paper detailing the importance of including human dimensions in monitoring activities associated with coastal restoration projects. It stressed the need to move to an evaluation of human-related impacts associated with restoration rather than more passive and short term approaches. The paper, “Coastal Restoration: Monitoring as a Planning-Evaluation Process” was presented on May 21 at the Second National Forum on Socioeconomic Research in Coastal Systems: Challenges of Natural Resource Economics and Policy, in New Orleans, La.
