Suggestions for Topics for discussion what we think might be feasible and interesting issues (without any specific ordering):
  • Development of new tools: Ideas to link large models to small models to deal with threshold issues
  • Development of new research ideas, overarching model that encompasses WP 6.1-6.3: Link oil and gas issues with fisheries and geopolitical aspects
  • Development of general theories about thresholds valid for all or most systems with thresholds (in particular we could explore the ”adaptation” path, which seems to have been neglected)
  • Discuss best practices e.g. for fisheries with thresholds maybe compared to total uncertainty (that presupposes regulation)
  • Highlight the value of regulations and cooperation compared to current situation
  • What are the different scenarios we may face?
