AORA-CSA workshop: Making the ecosystem approach operational presentations available

As part of a process to determine the science needs for investigating ocean stressors and the ecosystem approach, ICES and AORAC organized a workshop to scope what is seen as the “ecosystem approach” priorities and strategies of policy developers and stakeholders. The workshop will feed into the Galway process and be centered on science for blue growth.

The focus of the workshop was the main sectors that operate in the Atlantic Ocean and adjacent seas, namely shipping and ports, oil and gas, renewable energy, fishing, tourism, and aggregate extraction; specifically in relation to the blue growth agenda of the EU. The workshop featured presentations by the leading ecosystem approach experts from the UN, Europe, the USA, and Canada.
