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.
