Human Dimensions Committee
Key Tasks:
The Human Dimensions Committee’s area of responsibility is to promote and coordinate interdisciplinary research that leads to increased understanding of the relationship between North Pacific marine ecosystems and the people, communities, and economies that are part of those systems and rely on the resources and services they provide. Particular emphasis will be given to fostering research on: (a) methodological and empirical challenges involved in integrating human dimensions into ecosystem analyses; and (b) exploration of development pathways that are sustainable from social, economic, and ecological perspectives. The HD committee will support the work of other PICES expert groups, including any integrated science program. Where other PICES expert groups often consider the impact of human activities on ecosystems, the HD committee will promote both the consideration of these impacts and how biophysical changes impact the well-being of people, communities, and economies taking into account their characteristics and values. In addition, the committee will engage with kindred ‘human dimension’ initiatives of other organizations (e.g., ICES and IMBER).
