The Centre for Coastal Science and Management at Simon Fraser University promoted interdisciplinary research, education and dialogue on Canada's coastal ecosystems, particularly those in British Columbia. By linking social and natural science with local knowledge, the Centre focused on three key themes:

  1. Coastal and marine conservation
  2. Adaptation to climate change
  3. Building resource management capacity (government, community, academic)
     

The Centre for Coastal Science and Management is part of the Faculty of Environment and also works closely with the Faculty of Science.

CLOSED

March 31, 2016

The Centre for Coastal Science and Management (CCSM) closed its doors on March 31, 2016.  This site remains available as a resource for reports and past activities.

Some of the CCSM programming will be subsumed by the Pacific Water Reserach Centre under their coastal science and management theme.

We take this opportunity to thank all of our members, partners, sponsors and individuals who participated and contributed to the success of the Centre over the years.
