Coastal vulnerability to climate change: A comparative study of cases in the UK, France, and South Africa

Case
This case represents the collaborative effort of an international team focused on studying how coastal regions may respond to climate change as part of the Multi-Scale Adaptations to Climate Change and Social-Ecological Sustainability in Coastal Areas (MAGIC) research project funded by a Belmont grant.  The study involved three sites: Cornwall, England; Languedoc-Roussillon, France; and Eden District, South Africa.  The three study sites were selected based on their history of rapidly...

Alanya Coastal Fishery, Turkey

Case
The coastal fishery in Alanya is situated in Antalya Province along the southern Mediterranean coast of Turkey. The original case, which spans from 1976-1978, catalogues approximately 100 registered farmers operating 45 small inboard boats; pelagic fish (including bonits and large carangids) are the target resource unit. There is only one user group organization and no subgroups (just one group of small boat fishermen). The fishermen cooperate with one another and have access rules that involve...

Archetype Analysis in Commons Research

Case
This is a collaborative project based on the  IASC Arizona 2020 workshop panel on archetype analysis for commons research. Archetypes are increasingly used across a wide range of sustainability themes for “pattern recognition, diagnosis, or scenario development”.  The work draws on a family of cases from the Social-Ecological Systems (SES) Library at ASU - to explore how archetype analysis can be used to synthesize results from a set of case studies.  A second goal is...

Ayvalik-Haylazli Lagoon Fishery

Case
The Ayvalik-Haylazli lagoon fishery is located on the Turkish Mediterranean coast near the town of Adana. The resource units are demersal fish (mullets, groupers, and snappers). The original case, which spans from 1976-1978, catalogues an action situation involving 103 registered fishermen from three neighboring villages. As of 2011, the fishery and its adjacent waters are harvested by 397 registered fishermen from three neighboring villages. There are user group organizations (...

Brander-Taylor Model

Model
This is the original Brander-Taylor Easter Island model. Brander and Taylor (1998) describes the model as the following: "The paper presents a general equilibrium model of renewable resource and population dynamics related to the Lotka-Volterra predator-prey model, with man as the predator and the resource base as the prey. We apply the model to the rise and fall of Easter Island, showing that plausible parameter values generate a 'feast  and famine" pattern of cyclical adjustment in...

Community coral reef fishery, Ahus village, Ahus Island, Papua New Guinea

Case
The Ahus village coral reef is located off of the west coast of Manus Island north of Karkar Island and the mainland of Papua New Guinea. Approximately 600 residents live on a small (28 ha), densely populated, low-lying island with few terrestrial resources. A reported 77% of the population depends upon fishing as their primary occupation. The original case authors focus on the socioeconomic factors and context which influence the success of marine protected areas in Papua New Guinea.The case...

Community coral reef fishery, Muluk village, Karkar Island, Papua New Guinea

Case
The Muluk community coral reef fishery is located on the eastern side of Karkar Island off the northern shores of the Madang Province in Papua New Guinea. Karkar Island is a volcanic island with substantial terrestrial resources. The Muluk community consists of 330 people in 50 households, with just 5% depending on fishing as their primary occupation. The original case authors focus on the socioeconomic factors and context which influence the success of marine protected areas in Papua New...

Fishery Robustness Diagram

Case
This case is to illustrate the functionality of the dynamic robustness diagram.  Right now, the descriptions are very limited.  They will become much more detailed as the research continues.

Gageoda (Kagodo) Island anchovy fishery, South Korea

Case
Kogodo is an isolated island fishing community located in the Cholla Nam-do Province of Korea.  The resources harvested  are anchovies from the Kagodo anchovy grounds surrounding Kagodo Island as well as seaweed, which is harvested during spring. Boundaries are drawn on technological limitations, as boats can only travel a limited distance offshore. Seaweed grounds are owned collectively and can be accessed by member households. This case was part of the original CPR database developed in the...

Gageoda (Kagodo) Island myok grounds, South Korea

Case
This case was part of the original CPR database developed in the 1980s by Edella Schlager and Shui Yan Tang at Indiana University. Seaweed is the resource appropriated from the Kagodo myok grounds. It is harvested from the area surrounding the isolated island of Kagodo, off the southwest coast of Korea. The people collectively own the seaweed grounds and one member from each household can access the grounds. The author discusses three fishing villages and the differences among them in the...

Jambudwip Marine Fishery, India

Case
Jambudwip, an island in the Bay of Bengal, is located about 7 miles to the southwest of Bakkhali in the South 24 Parganas district in the state of West Bengal, India. The original case, which spans from 1967-1968, catalogues an action situation involving approximately 243 fishermen in the village; the resource unit are demersal and midwater fish species. The boundary is based on traditional use and technology limitations. Two distinct types of institutional arrangements exist among the...

Large N Comparative Studies of Ostrom's Design Principles

Case
There have been a number of studies that focus on testing whether and in what contexts Ostrom's institutional design principles may lead to successful governance of common-pool resources.  The study of Cox et al. (see sources) coded the presence or absence of each of 8 design principles and success in 62 cases and found that the likelihood of success and the presence of individual design principles is positively correlated.   However, because institutions are systems, it is...

Mathematical Models in Social Ecological Systems

Case
This case is an umbrella to capture a range of models of ecological, social, social-ecological, and other natural systems (e.g. climate).  In addition, there are several models whose main purpose is to demonstrate model visualization features related to a number of famous mathematical models including the Lorenz Model, the discrete logistic, and predator prey models. The Lorenz Model, probably the most famous of all simple models, is the first ever model of a chaotic dynamical system....
