Coastal Ecosystem Capital Accounts

February 2013 to November 2013

The European Environment Agency (EEA) can adapt its existing accounting framework and resulting experimental accounts and extend coverage to these ecosystems  by developing and testing a concept, analytical framework and methodology for coastal ecosystem capital accounting. The final aim of this work is to contribute to the United Nations (UN) process on ecosystem accounting (as part of EEA support) as well as to support others working on this issue (e.g. implementation of Target 2/Action 5 of the EU 2020 Biodiversity Strategy).

Ecologic's previous work focused on physicalRead more

Integrated Management of Coastal Areas in the Face of Climate Change Adaptation

January 2013 to November 2014

Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICM) is a socio environmental issue of increasing importance. In the face of fisheries collapse, climate change and increasing human pressure on marine coastal ecosystems, multi-stakeholder management of the world's coasts is vital to conservation and sustainable exploitation of coasts.

The ICM project aims to gauge Member States' knowledge about ICM and Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) and provide the most up-to-date research and data with specific attention to climate change adaptation in coastal areas. It also sets out to identifyRead more

New Tools and Policy Options to Improve the Management of Marine Litter (CLEANSEA)

December 2012 to December 2015

CLEANSEA is a research project that takes an interdisciplinary approach to studying marine litter. CLEANSEA assesses the state of marine litter in European seas, rivers and on beaches and its impact on biological, social and economic processes. It aims to develop new tools to help collect data and monitor on litter and develop policy options to improve the management of marine litter by identifying deficiencies in existing legislation and standards. CLEANSEA focuses mainly on marine areas relevant to the EU; the Black Sea, Mediterranean, Baltic and North East Atlantic region. The project is funded under the 7th Research Framework Programme of the EU (FP7). The consortium has diverse partners including research institutes, universities, SMEs, and an NGO.
