The Brazilian cross-level ocean governance transformation case study offers the Consortium a possibility of changing the game on how the country governs its entire Exclusive Economic Zone. Supported by a range of inter- and transdisciplinary activities facilitated by the OCEANS PACT team, dozens of early career researchers, fishers' leaders and related organizations will be mobilized to exchange knowledge and synergize eight on-going transdisciplinary research, education, extension and policy initiatives in the city of Brasilia and throughout the entire coast of São Paulo state. In Brazil, the knowledge and expertise of the Consortium's international teams will boost a multi-year thematic foci research-action campaigns aiming transformation of conflicts between small-scale fisheries and the blue economy/growth (2020); scenarios and prospects of climate change and the launching of the International Decade of Ocean Science to Sustainable Development (2021); and in the final year finally resonating with the upcoming International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture (2022). The proposal thus strategically aligns with the next critical few years to engage and capacitate the new generation of citizen-scientists to use the best science and evidence to transform long-standing conflicts associated to marine conservation, aquaculture, coastal development, industrial fisheries and port development in Brazil.
