The Centre for Coastal Science and Management at Simon Fraser University promotes 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 focuses on three key themes:
- Coastal and marine conservation
- Adaptation to climate change
- 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. Administration and outreach programming for the Centre is overseen by Continuing Studies in Science and Environment in Lifelong Learning.
