Gulf of California Regional Science Integration Assessment

With support from the Walton Family Foundation and David and Lucile Packard Foundation, Coastal Quest and its implementing partner, Blue Earth Consultants developed a comprehensive assessment of science integration for the entire Gulf of California region. This assessment examined needs and opportunities for scientific research and the strengthening of science integration for decision-making, identified capacity gaps and priorities for science and for building a two-way connection between science and decision-making; mapped the current institutional arrangements; and identified future needs and opportunities for ocean and coastal management in the Gulf of California. The article, “Coastal and Ocean Science-Based Decision-Making in the Gulf of California: Lessons and Opportunities for Improvement,” was recently published in the journal Coastal Management; the article describes key findings from this project.
