MPARG launches Project IMPAACT

Several members of the Marine Protected Areas Research Group have launched a new initiative titled “Project IMPAACT: Improving Marine Protected Areas on the Andaman Coast of Thailand under a Climate Change Regime”. Headed by Dr Phil Dearden, whose academic work has been partially focused on conservation in Thailand for the past 30 years, Project IMPAACT’s goal is to increase ecosystem resilience and social adaptive capacity in MPAs on the Andaman Coast of Thailand. Project IMPAACT also involves PhD candidates Petch Manopawitr, a Wildlife Conservation Society Fellow and previous Fullbright Scholar, and Nathan Bennett, a Trudeau and SSHRC CGS Scholar.
