KnowSeas : KnowSeas Knowledge-based Sustainable Management for Europe

Type of Entry: Project
Website: www.knowseas.com
Duration: 04/2009 - 03/2013

Funding Programme: FP7 (EU 7th Framework Programme)

The overall objective of the project is to provide a comprehensive scientific knowledge base and practical guidance for the application of the Ecosystem Approach to the sustainable development of Europe’s regional seas. This will increase the evidence base available for decision makers and facilitate the practical implementation of the Ecosystem Approach, currently seen by some stakeholders as confusing and nebulous. It will be delivered through a series of specific sub-objectives that lead to a scientifically based suite of tools to assist policy makers and regulators with the practical application of the Ecosystem Approach. It is also expected to deliver high quality scientific outputs that advance our understanding of coupled social and ecological systems.
