INSIDE
the Box

What IS the Box?
Box = The Human Networks Associated With:
LME Governance
LME Science, Synthesis, Assessments
LME (Sustainable) Management
LME Knowledge Structure / Informatics
WHO is inside the Box?
Who = The Human Networks Associated with:
New ICSU Earth Systems Sustainability Initiative

Others
What Does
The Box
Look Like?
Towards a Global LME Sustainability-Science
Knowledge Network
What is an LME-Based SustainabilityScience Knowledge Network?
What is a
Large Marine Ecosystem?
Large Marine Ecosystems Are:
Regions of the world's oceans characterized by distinct bathymetry, hydrography,
productivity, and trophically dependent populations.
Developed by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)
A tool for enabling sustainable ecosystem-based management in ecologically
bounded transnational areas
Threats to LMEs require coordinated actions by governments and civil society
LMEs produce 95% of the world's annual marine fishery biomass yields

What is
Sustainability
Science?
Sustainability Science
is
Problem Driven
Research
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustainability_science)
What are the Origins of
Sustainability Science?
This new field of science was officially introduced
with a "Birth Statement" at the World Congress,
"Challenges of a Changing Earth 2001”, in
Amsterdam organized by:
International Council for Science (ICSU)
International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme (IGBP)
International Human Dimensions Programme on Global
Environmental Change (IHDP)
World Climate Research Programme (WCRP)
What is the Goal of Sustainability
Science?
to advance basic understanding of the dynamics of humanenvironment systems
to facilitate the design, implementation, and evaluation of
practical interventions that promote sustainability in
particular places and contexts
to improve linkages between relevant research and
innovation communities on the one hand, and relevant
policy and management communities on the other
What are the broad objectives of
Sustainability Science?
Knowledge structuring of issues
Coordination of data
Interdisciplinary approaches
What is a knowledge network?
(Knowledge) Networks are a “combination of persons [or
organizations], usually dispersed over a number of geographically
separate sites, with appropriate communications technology.”
The purpose is to foster change in specific policies and practices to
support sustainable development.
A benefit of a knowledge network is that each member becomes
stronger. An underlying premise of a knowledge network is that the
whole is greater than the sum of the parts.

New Opportunities
NSF SEES Initiative
NSF SEES initiative is designed to: “focus on supporting
research that facilitates global community sustainability,
specifically through building connections between current
projects, creating new nodes of activity, and developing
personnel needed to solve sustainability issues.
New Opportunities
NSF SEES Initiative
The SEES initiative supports:
SEES RCN: Research Coordination Networks for Sustainability: Developing
infrastructure for a global research network
SEES PIRE: Community Building activity thru the Partnership for International
Research and Education
SEES CNH: Couples Natural and Human Systems - Advancing assessment activity
thru coupled natural and human systems
New Opportunities
NSF SEES Initiative
Central to the proposition is a partnership between:
A California Current Best Practices Network
The GEF-IW LME Community of Practice Network
IOC-UNESCO Capacity Building, MSP, and EBM Networks
ICES Working Group for LME Practices Network
ICSU ESSI + Earth Systems Governance Network
