How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Emilio Rodríguez-Izquierdo has a PhD in Sustainability Science from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). Emilio does research in Sustainability, Socio-Ecological Modeling and Public Policy. Emilio developed an approach for determining the carrying capacity of whale watching boats through the case study of gray whale watching at the Ojo de Liebre coastal lagoon in Baja California, Mexico.
Resilience challenges for cities require bridging the gap between theorized concepts, such as resilience attributes, and its application to urban planning. Resilience attributes have been used by international policy initiatives to guide urban resilience without paying attention to how these attributes are represented in public policies. We present...
Resilience of urban systems is a critical concept in times of climate change and global environmental degradation due to the vulnerability of urban infrastructure and its population for example to higher intensity of climate extreme events. This chapter asks how 12 megacities and 25 cities in coastal and delta areas within the Resilient Cities Netw...
Policy-making to protect threatened species implies dealing with uncertainty and ignorance. Conservation management of the Eastern gray whale (Eschrichtius robustus) population through the regulation of whale watching in the lagoon Ojo de Liebre, Mexico, is a useful example of policy-making challenged by lack of scientific knowledge regarding the n...
La observación de ballena gris (Eschrichtius robustus) en la Laguna Ojo de Liebre, en Baja California Sur, México, es una actividad ecoturística que se realiza cada año entre diciembre y abril. Si bien el gobierno mexicano regula esta actividad —en particular limita el número de embarcaciones para observación de ballenas—, se carece de la informaci...
Local community involvement in natural resource management can be critical to conservation success. Community participation in conservation efforts varies widely, reflecting a continuum from protectionist conservation mechanisms to programmes driven by local communities. Conservation is not one event, but an iterative process with many steps (plann...
Participatory approaches to the conservation management of protected areas are being implemented worldwide due to cost-effective and moral reasons. However, given the wide spectrum of participation, levels of participation across the conservation management process might vary from one stage to another. This study presents a unique analysis of how p...
To analyze the ways in which political-economic inequalities influence the permanence of production-consumption patterns with high socio-environmental costs and which institutions support it
To develop state and management indicators of the of the short-term and priority actions of the Resilience Strategy and the projects of the Agency.
