Conservation of Natural resources for Sustainable Devlopments

Sustainable development at local, regional and global scale perhaps is the most difficult task that humanity has ever faced. Central to all of the many approaches aimed at both identifying unsustainable practices and achieving sustainability, are access to scientific knowledge and its application. The great sustainability problems of the 21st century e.g., poverty alleviation, sustainable food production, clean and accessible water resources, the health of ecosystem and maintenance of biodiversity all require usable scientific knowledge as one critical component for their solution.

Nutrient Enhanced-Artisan Reefs

By using local labor and materials, Nutrient Enhanced-Artisan Reefs (NEAR) plans to create artificial reefs to increase fish production by marine compost of waste products.  Owing to global climate change and bad fishing practices, food security for communities that rely on fishing is at risk.  The artificial reef would not only aggregate fish to a particular area, but also increase fish production in this areas.  This project is accomplished while also reusing and marine composting waste products available within the community.
