3. Sargassum re-use (WP3)
Aim: To identify the bio-chemical characteristics of the seaweed to identify appropriate alternative uses, and to find the barriers to uptake by vulnerable communities.
Contact: Prof Mona Webber, University of West Indies
4. Policy and governance (WP4)
Aim: To explore the implications of framing sargassum as a beneficial resource or a hazard, and to identify opportunities and constraints for use of sargassum.
