PuntLab at IMBIZO 5

The 5th IMBIZO (Zulu word for gathering) took place at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute from 2 – 5 October. The meeting involved three workshops, one of which was “Management Strategy Evaluation: Achieving transparency in natural resource management by quantitatively bridging social and natural science uncertainties”. This workshop was co-chaired by Ingrid van Putten (CSIRO), Cisco Werner (NOAA) and ex-Punt-labber Gavin Fay (now an Assistant Professor at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth). André Punt gave the keynote address outlining the history of Management Strategy Evaluation and the challenges applying it. The Workshop also included a talk by SAFS alum Ana Parma and talks that covered the gamut from natural to social science. An outcome from the workshop is a planned paper on a general framework for providing decision support – watch this space..
