Master thesis
“Vulnerability of fishery-based social-ecological systems to climate change. A case study on the small-scale fishery of Soqotra Island, Yemen.”
Human induced climate change is an additional stressor for marine and coastal ecosystems, which also affects humans who are dependent on the provided ecosystem goods like fish. To analyze negative impacts of climate change the vulnerability approach is useful, which describes exposure, sensitivity and adaptive capacity of a system. In my study the focused system is the fishery of Soqotra Island (Yemen) which is conceptualized as an integrative social-ecological system. The field research from March till May 2013 was designed as an interdisciplinary community based vulnerability assessment, so ecological fish biomass studies were conducted, as well as empirical social scientific household survey, focus group interviews and expert interviews with relevant stakeholders. Besides describing the vulnerability of the SES “Fishery” on Soqotra, the aim of the study is to identify capacities and barriers which have an influence on the adaption of the local population.
