Security of property rights in fisheries and external investment
Advised by Christopher Costello
While completing his MESM degree, Rodrigo Oyanedel (Class of 2015) has been working on a directed research project exploring the effect of property rights security on the perceptions of external investors with the potential to fund fisheries "recovery gaps." Rodrigo's work seeks to determine if property rights in fisheries management can make investment external investors more attractive, and therefore promote investment in fisheries recovery around the globe.
He is also assisting in the developing of a bio-economic model for a project examining the ability to maintain productivity and incomes in the Tonle Sap fishery in the face of climate change. The model will help to understand trade-offs in reserve placement and fishing pressure management.
