Interdisciplinary research for the sustainable management of the marine environment, climate change and food security: Case Studies from the Western Indian Ocean

SOLSTICE-WIO is a four-year collaborative project funded by the UK Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). Launched in October 2017, it brought together recent advances in marine technologies, local knowledge and research expertise to address challenges of sustainable management of the marine environment, food security and climate change facing the Western Indian Ocean region. As SOLSTICE is coming to an end, project researchers from the WIO countries and the UK have produced a series of presentations based on their work.  Running at about 20 minutes each, these presentations highlight project successes in research, stakeholder engagement, communication, and science into policy.
