The Strategic Initiative on the Human Dimension (SIHD) aims to develop strategies to support the integration of social and economic science into ICES work.

​​​​​​Marine ecosystem management is a challenge for which we need to be able to work interdisciplinary and integrate different networks, knowledge domains and stakeholder networks in the marine and maritime sectors. ICES has traditionally focused on building a natural science base for its advice on sustainable use of marine resources. The Strategic Initiative on the Human Dimension (SIHD) is working on providing support for the integration of social and economic sciences and the humanities into ICES work.

SIHD is a network of people within the ICES community who are working on providing support for the integration of social and economic sciences and the humanities into fisheries and marine ecosystem science and advice and sharing their expertise within the ICES community.

SIHD aims to identify and bring together existing Ecosystem Based Management related initiatives within ICES, find the gaps, and then pinpoint activities outside of ICES to help fill these gaps.

The initiative will address current research needs based on the ICES Strategic Plan and existing knowledge on the topic. Both integrated ecosystem understanding and integrated ecosystem assessments are core elements of the strategic plan.
