Andrés Cisneros-Montemayor (PhD) is a resource economist specializing in marine social-ecological systems. He is Program Manager of the Nippon Foundation Nereus Program and Research Associate at the University of British Columbia. Linking field and theoretical work, he studies the economics of ecotourism, competing fishing sectors, alternative management strategies, and ecosystem and social-ecological approaches to policy in multi-stakeholder contexts. An important aspect of this work involves the dynamics between commercial, recreational, social and cultural benefits from shared ecosystems. All of these studies highlight applications of novel theoretical qualitative and quantitative models to real-world settings, both in developing and developed regions.
