Désirée Schwindenhammer, Hauke Kegler, Hauke Reuter, Christopher Muhando, Daudi Msagameno, George Rushingisha, Arthur Tuda, Theuri Mwangi & David Obura
This policy brief informs decision-makers about the benefits of effective marine biodiversity data sharing and proposes measures to encourage and improve sharing among stakeholders. The oceans and coastal areas in Eastern African countries are home to an abundance of marine biodiversity, with immense ecological and socioeconomic value. Stakeholders have varying interests concerning shared ecosystems. Transboundary conservation goals and harmonised coastal management strategies are of great value to sustain ecological services for future generations and to...

Mangroves and Meaning-Making: A mutual relationship over time? Ethnographic interview transcripts

Anne-Katrin Broocks
EN: Transcriptions of semi-structured interviews held with mangrove use groups during field work in the mangrove areas of Southern Ecuador. Questions developed based on cultural domain analysis (Borgatti 1994, Bernard 2006:266ff., Schnegg and Lang 2008) and grand tour questions (Spradley 1979:86) within the theoretical framework of the Sociology of Knowledge.ES: Transcripciones de entrevistas abiertas estandardizadas realizados con grupos usando los manglares durante un trabajo de campo en los manglares de Ecuador del sur. Cuestionario fue...

Mangroves and Meaning-Making: A mutual relationship over time? Transect Walks transcripts

Anne-Katrin Broocks
EN: Transcription of Transect Walks through the mangrove user communities and a science institution engaged in mangrove use. Developed in the context of Rapid Rural Appraisal methods for quick data gathering in community development (Chambers 2012, Pelto 2016:77), the method comprises of a systematical walk through the sample area accompanied by one or more knowledgeable people of the zone (Mukherjee 1997:52). Every object of interest was discussed and explained.ES: Transcripciones de Transect Walks en los...

Mangroves and Meaning-Making: A mutual relationship over time? Ethnographic Data

Anna-Katharina Hornidge, María José Barragán-Paladines, Anne-Katrin Broocks & Martin Zimmer
EN: Mangrove forests are located at the in-between of the sea and the land. People around the world have made sense of mangroves in many different ways, ranging from mangroves as „home of ghosts“, „resources“, „biodiversity reserve“, „coastal protection“ to „death bringers“. The aim of the research project is to understand how people in Southern Ecuador have made sense of their mangrove surrounding at the Gulf of Guayaquil over the last 200 years, and how...

Mangroves and Meaning-Making: A mutual relationship over time? Expert interview transcripts

Anne-Katrin Broocks
EN: Transcriptions of semi-structured interviews held with stakeholders involved in mangrove management and/or mangrove use during field work in the mangrove areas of Southern Ecuador. Questions developed based on cultural domain analysis (Borgatti 1994, Bernard 2006:266ff., Schnegg and Lang 2008) and grand tour questions (Spradley 1979:86) within the theoretical framework of the Sociology of Knowledge. The lack of female voices is not only coincidently but symptomatic for the scientific and everyday-life (mangrove) discourse (cf. Merchant...
