Abstract: 

In this presentation I introduce a new approach to managing risk in marine food-producing systems -- fisheries and aquaculture -- based on weather index and cooperative insurance. The mathematical framework is explained and then results are shown from its application to a case-study in Myanmar, where empirical data has been collected. I will also briefly introduce early work from a new project focusing on Manifold Learning, a new approach to studying the multilevel dynamics of complex systems.
