University Of Rhode Island Key Developments

U.S. Department of Homeland Security Selects University of Rhode Island as Partner on Coastal Resiliency Research

The University of Rhode Island has been selected by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to be one of two primary partners, along with Jackson State University, in the Coastal Resilience Center of Excellence at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The selection, which could result in funding in excess of $2.5 million, enables URI to provide key research designed to help build resiliency along nation's coastlines and prepare for increasingly severe coastal hazards. Two of three funded research projects focus on the design of tools and methods to enable communities to become better prepared for sea level rise, more intense hurricanes, and other coastal hazards associated with climate change. One will address how best to communicate the risks of increasing coastal hazards to motivate individuals to prepare and mitigate potential impacts. This initiative will build upon the work of behavior change expert and URI Psychology Professor James Prochaska, whose model of behavior change has been applied to more than 50 health behaviors including smoking, exercise and diet and more recently has branched to behaviors such as climate change and sustainable transportation. The second project aims to overcome barriers to community action by identifying opportunities where collective action can mitigate potential impacts. Community members will be invited to engage in a simulated decision-making process, led by URI environmental economist James Opaluch, to test the effectiveness of various incentives and policies designed to address coastal hazards.

Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and University Of Rhode Island Announce Formation of RI Marine Fisheries Institute

Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and University of Rhode Island announced the establishment of the RI Marine Fisheries Institute (RIMFI) - a new partnership aimed at coordinating marine fisheries science, research, and educational activities of priority importance in Rhode Island. The Institute will serve as a link between the marine fisheries programs at DEM and URI and as a focal point for collaboration with the Rhode Island fishing industry. Based on the successful model developed by the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries and the University of Massachusetts, RIMFI's mission is to promote sustainable fisheries by providing timely information and guidance to protect, conserve, and manage Rhode Island's marine fisheries resources through research, education and public service. Its partnership-based approach, drawing upon close ties with Rhode Island's marine fishing industry, will leverage collective state assets to better understand and manage Rhode Island's marine resources. The primary objectives of the new Institute will be to develop and undertake innovative and practical fisheries research projects that will contribute to the scientific understanding and sound management of the marine fisheries resources of the State and region, and to the economic growth and stability of the commercial and recreational fishing industries that rely upon those resources.
