Abstract or Summary
  • A central objective for UK Department for International Development (DFID) funded research on renewable natural resource systems has been that the research commissioned results in significant positive developmental impacts. This paper describes the outcomes of activities employed by the DFID funded Fisheries Management Science Programme to assess the developmental impact of fisheries management research achieved by projects commissioned under the Programme during the last 11 years. Fisheries pose a particular challenge for the attribution of impacts. A variety of approaches to impact assessment are required, as the systems are characteristically complex, dynamic and heterogeneous. Typically fishery systems operate across multiple scales, involving a wide range of stakeholders with different, and sometimes conflicting, objectives. Fisheries management, usually faced with multiple uncertainties about the system and its dynamics, has to occur at a scale that accounts for both the biophysical scale of the resource and the scale at which there exists the capacity and capability to manage. The paper will illustrate some of the impacts that have been achieved and highlight some of the lessons learned regarding uptake, adoption and impact assessment that should be of interest to researchers and those funding developmental research.
