In the current context of climate change, the main challenge for the fisheries sector is to increase the resilience of its socio-ecological system while preserving ecosystems and maintaining its productivity to guarantee the services it provides, both in terms of food security and cultural, social and economic aspects.

To meet this challenge and prevent maladaptation, it is key to co-design and implement Adaptation Plans in collaboration with the fisheries sector, where the specificities of the socio-economic and ecological system are included. Therefore, the general objective of VADAPES-II project is to assess the socio-ecological resilience of the fisheries sector, with different types of fisheries and case studies that will allow the definition of priority adaptation and mitigation actions that guarantee the food security provided by fisheries, and that will also allow the identification of the maladaptation risks that each of these actions may have in each context.
