Economic and Social Assessment

 

A key consideration in the implementation of new resource management arrangements, such as fishery management plans or aquatic protected areas, is the economic and social impact on affected stakeholders.

MRAG has considerable expertise in undertaking social and economic impact assessments of changes in resource use, including cost-benefit analyses, economic impact assessments, social impact assessments and bio-economic modelling.  

In addition, MRAG's access to specialists across environmental, economic and social disciplines has us uniquely placed to provide comprehensive assessments of the triple bottom line performance of management proposals and alternative resource use options.
