WHO IS THIS WEBSITE FOR?

Marine scientists, managers, policy makers, regulators and sectoral organisations who are involved in creating, testing, advising on, or implementing management measures in the marine environment and those who are trying to implement an integrated ecosystem-based approach. The resources and knowledge generated were tested in European regional seas but all the ideas and tools are suitable to adapt to any marine management area.

The key objective is to produce scientifically-based operational procedures that allow for a step by step transition from the current fragmented system to fully integrated management.

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO START?

The website presents three routes to lead you to useful resources, tools and approaches developed during the project. The ODEMM Approach presents the outcomes of the project as a holistic overview of a system assessment. However, it is not always easy to start from such a high level and broad perspective. The Resources presents a list of all the approaches developed. Finally, Questions highlight particular aspects of assessments and directs you to the appropriate tools and resources.
