Humans depend on the oceans for many goods and services essential to their well-being. As terrestrial and marine ecosystems change in response to climate, these dependencies are expected to become even greater, particularly, but hardly exclusively, for food security. This session will focus on how society, at a range of scales from community to population, might adapt to the changes expected in the oceans, and in the goods and services on which they depend so that optimal benefits may be obtained without unacceptable increases in the risks to the systems. Contributions from social scientists, economists, and policy experts are welcomed, as well as from natural scientists interested in strategies for sustainable use of marine resources in the face of changing human needs as well as changing ocean conditions. Just a few decades in the future, societies and governments may face very difficult choices about the proper balance between provision of food security and conservation of marine biodiversity for an even bigger human population confronted with changing, possibly declining, aquatic and terrestrial food production. The proper balance between established uses of oceans and coastal regions and new uses, such as wind and tidal power, must also be faced. This session is intended to open an expert dialogue on these important questions, through a mixture of conceptual, analytical, and case-history presentations.
