Dr Martin van Bueren's Recent Projects

Case study

Approaches for determining compensation in commercial fisheries

Designing a compensation scheme and setting a proper level of compensation, be it for compulsory buy-out of licences or a voluntary scheme, is inherently difficult. Participants have divergent goals. Fishers seek the best price possible for surrendering their rights, while the government seeks the best overall value for all parties. Importantly, compensation schemes need to be transparent, defensible and equitable if they are to gain broad acceptance.

Case study

Economic impact assessment for the WA Marine Science Institution

The Western Australian Marine Science Institution (WAMSI) was established in 2006 by the WA State Government as an independent research organisation tasked with improving the coordination of marine research in WA, promoting collaboration between stakeholders and guiding research priorities. Synergies was engaged by WAMSI to assess the effectiveness and impact of its research program, its strategic investments and its operating model.
