Assessing food security and resilience of small island communities

The primary goal of this project is to assess the food security and resilience of the small island fishing communities in Indonesia to socio-environmental changes, in particular to the declining stock of fish due to the increasing number of fishermen in the area. The project will be based on case-study work in the Kei islands in Southeast Maluku.
