OVERVIEW OF THE PROJECT

OBJECTIVES

MARISCO starts by acknowledging that drivers of change – biological responses and sustainable management strategies (and even targets) – are multidimensional, but their assessment and implementation in management is often conducted in simplified effect-response frameworks.

  • Understanding the relative importance of anthropogenic changes in marine communities in terms of composition, richness, dominance and interaction webs.

  • Quantifying the variety and strength of feedbacks between multiple aspects of biodiversity change and multiple dimensions of Nature’s Contribution to People (NCP).

  • Co-developing targets and strategies for a sustainable management of coastal marine ecosystems in cooperation with stakeholders.
