ICES Steering Group on Ecosystem Processes and Dynamics (SSGEPD) works towards an integrated understanding of marine ecosystems and their response to change. To assist in the development of Integrated Ecosystem Assessments (IEAs) and the provision of management advice, SSGEPD delivers ecosystem indicators of state and function.
ICES has five
Steering Groups (SSGs), which provide a home for our Expert Groups. The
membership of each SSG consists of a the chairs of the Expert Groups affiliated
to the SSG, plus an SSG Chair. The SSGs manage the science portfolio and ensure
that delivery is coordinated and driven by the needs of the ICES Implementation
Plan, as well as by bottom-up developments.
