Influences of Global Environmental Assessments on Ocean Sustainability

Influences of Global Environmental Assessments on Ocean Sustainability | SURVEY


Calling on all Ocean and Sustainability advocates!  

As part of a Masters on Applied Coastal and Marine Management Kyle Fawkes has developed an online 5 minute survey. Here below you can find out more and how you can take part.

The world is changing at a rapid pace. Global environmental assessments have an important part to play in how we respond to these changes and align societal progress with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

As part of the research I am conducting with University College Cork, Ireland and Future Earth Coasts, I have developed a short survey to investigate the influences that global environmental assessments and in particular the First World Ocean Assessment have had on sustainable ocean development.

If you consider yourself an advocate for the oceans and their sustainability, or if you interact with the oceans on a regular basis, you should take this quick 5-minute survey here and share your opinion on ocean assessments.

Your participation is voluntary and you may withdraw at any time during the survey. All results will remain anonymous, with no linkage to your identity in subsequent reports or publications. For further information or questions please contact me at Your participation is greatly appreciated.
