Evidence based approach to effect of decommissioning on MPA conservation and ecosystem services

People Involved

Professor Mike Elliott
Professor of Estuarine and Coastal Sciences/ Research Professor, Institute of Estuarine and Coastal Studies

Project Description

Building on existing frameworks, we will develop a Decision Steering Document (DSD) which contains a transparent, defendable and more streamlined procedure for identifying and assessing scientific evidence. The DSD will facilitate decision-making for understanding the impact of decommissioning plans and their potential impacts (positive and negative) on the condition of qualifying features and site integrity of MPAs.
