AbstractThe ATLAS EU Horizon 2020 project, running from 2016 to 2020, has created a dynamic new partnership to assess the Atlantic's deep-sea ecosystems and Marine Genetic Resources and create the integrated and adaptive planning products needed for sustainable Blue Growth. ATLAS is gathering diverse new information on sensitive Atlantic ecosystems (including Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VMEs) and Ecologically or Biologically Sensitive Areas (EBSAs)) to produce a step-change in our understanding of their connectivity, functioning and responses to future changes in human use and ocean climate. Fully integrated spatial planning products built on basin and regional scales are needed to allow stakeholders to explore, and respond to, alternate scenarios of ocean dynamics and cross-sectoral Blue Growth.
The EU FP7 MESMA (Monitoring and Evaluation of Spatially Managed Areas) framework is being applied in case studies spanning the deep waters of the EU, US, Canada and ABNJs (NAFO and NEAFC regulatory areas) against the backdrop of potential climate change, to develop marine spatial planning scenarios to support basin scale ecosystem based management. Initial plans for each case study are presented.
