This project investigates how potential future environmental consequences of the forthcoming interoceanic Nicaragua Canal will entail changes to the livelihoods of the citizens of the small fishing town Merida, located on Ometepe Island in Lake Nicaragua. The purpose of this research is to identify the most important elements and resources for upholding the current livelihood in Merida, so that these can lead to an examination regarding how resilient the people of Merida are in relation to the impending changes of their everyday life. This examination is based upon potential scenarios as a result of the canal building before the actual changes already has occurred. Finally, this study shows that the same minor national or global changes can result in major local changes.
