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