ICES Steering Group on Ecosystem Pressures and Impacts (SSGEPI) estimates pressures and impacts between human activities and marine ecosystems, and develops science-based sustainable pathways for human use.
Tools and methods are developed by the steering group that enable an improved assessment of the relationships between marine ecosystems, their biological resources, and the provision of services to society, including the human dimension.
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.
