Global changes such as Climate Change and its effects on ecosystems have led to the development of new management strategies such as Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM): a holistic and adaptive approach to diagnose socio-ecological vulnerabilities and early respond to them. Among the challenges for its implementation, the lack of a systemic vision and the divergence of opinions among decision makers are intensified in the management of complex environments, such as sandy beaches. The management of impacts in this environment tends to prioritize few ecosystem functions and disregard ecological processes and the effects of climate change on them. Thus, to understand if and how beach management decision makers identify and prioritize the Ecosystem Services provided by the sandy beaches and its vulnerabilities to Climate Change are important steps to map the limitations and opportunities of the implementation of EBM for beaches. This is the objective of this project , which will study the North Coast of São Paulo State. Through techniques such as survey and document review (of public policies, legal norms and scientific literature), analysis of social networks, interviews with key actors, discourse analysis and SWOT analysis, it is proposed to discuss how different views can affect the application of EBM in beaches, subsidize strategies to overcome difficulties and limitations encountered and to increase the theoretical framework related to adaptations to Climate Change.
