Coastal communities, indigenous peoples and small-scale fishers around the world depend on the ocean for their livelihoods, subsistence, well-being and cultural continuity. Understanding the human dimensions of populated coastlines is critical for evidence-based decision-making in all areas of marine policy, including marine conservation, marine spatial planning, fisheries management, the blue economy, and climate change adaptation.

Through a socio-ecological approach and multiple methods, this line of research seeks to understand the past and future trends of the marine-coastal systems of southern Chile, addressing concerns related to their sustainability and, therefore, various issues such as governance and management, use and impacts of extractive and non-extractive activities, tenure and rights, values ​​and culture, human well-being and socio-environmental conflicts, equity and justice, social resilience, behavior and livelihoods.
