Exploring tools for the provision of knowledge for the Ecosystem Approach

Bringing marine managers and EBM tool developers together

When: 16-18 May 2018*
Where: InterContinental Hotel, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
Conveners: M.Robin Anderson, Paul Snelgrove, Howard Townsend, Anna Rindorf, Mark Dickey-Collas

​​​​​​​​The Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance (AORA) Working Group on the Ecosystem Approach to Ocean Health and Stressors (EA2OHS) promotes research to understand the North Atlantic Ocean in support of ecosystem-based management (EBM).  EBM is recognized as the best means to advance knowledge to both manage marine ecosystems and their associated resources, across multiple ocean-use sectors, and across multiple stressors. 

AORA is sponsoring a workshop to bring together managers with the developers of tools for ecosystem based management.

Over 2.5 days participants will be invited to contribute to the creation of a best practice document on using and developing tools for Ecosystem Based Management. Expected participants are providers of operational tools for EBM and marine managers that use tools and have experienced tangible challenges.

There is no fee to participate, but registration is required.

Terms of Reference for workshop:

Develop a best practice document on using and developing tools for ecosystem based management, including:

  1. Review case studies of existing tools and knowledge for ecosystem management with special focus on the Atlantic Ocean 
  2. ​Dialogue with providers and users of tools to identify knowledge needs and gaps
    • Solicit feedback from managers on knowledge gaps and process improvements needed at the science-policy interface.
  3. Identify challenges of operationalization of tools
    • Suggest ways to improve use of existing tools
    • Highlight best practice
  4. Define effective methods for communication and visualization of outputs when working with managers.
*In connection to the 4th World Conference on Marine Biodiversity 13-16 May
