Tools for Ecosystem Based Management: What are the criteria for successful uptake and use of a tool in exploring trade-offs in Ecosystem Based Management?

16-18 May 2018*
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 holding a workshop to explore how to move from good intentions and research ideas to a roadmap for successful application through review of existing tools and dialogue with practitioners on knowledge needs.

Over 2.5 days participants will be invited to contribute to the creation of a best practice document on  the criteria for successful uptake and use of a tool in exploring trade-offs in EBM. Expected participants are providers of operational tools for EBM and marine managers that use tools and have experienced tangible challenges.

​Terms of Reference for workshop:

Develop a best practice document on the criteria for successful uptake and use of a tool in exploring trade-offs in EBM​, including:​​

  1. Define what is meant by successful uptake
  2. Explore the potential criteria for successful uptake
  3. Explore factors that hinder uptake
  4. Use examples to highlight success and poor uptake
  5. Synthesise result into a report and include ways to improve use of existing tools​
*In connection to the 4th World Conference on Marine Biodiversity 13-16 May

​AORA-CSA is funded by the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme under grant agreement no 652677.
