About Liverpool Institute for Sustainable Coasts and Oceans

Our coastlines and seas are vitally important. One third of the world’s population lives in the coastal zone and our seas are vital for transportation, food and energy production, tourism and leisure, and are home to rich and diverse ecosystems

The oceans are key to addressing the twin global challenges of climate change and loss of biodiversity, whilst also holding the potential for blue growth. 

LISCO brings together natural scientists, social scientists and engineers to meet these challenges. We work in partnership with government, industry, stakeholders, communities and other research institutions.  We contribute new knowledge and help to develop new approaches for the sustainable use and management of marine and coastal resources in the UK and internationally.

We aim to translate science into social and environmental benefits, and also offer expert advice and  engage with communities locally and further afield.
