    <subfield code="a">&lt;p&gt;North Atlantic EBSAs, VMEs and MPAs in a changing ocean - a&amp;nbsp;one-day symposium&lt;/p&gt;

In the North Atlantic, the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) is central to the flow&lt;br&gt;
of energy and elements through the ocean. However, significant gaps in our understanding of the&lt;br&gt;
links between large-scale oceanographic processes and living marine resources hinder the&lt;br&gt;
development of predictive models to account for changes in ocean conditions due to climate&lt;br&gt;
change and increased human activity.&lt;br&gt;
The ATLAS project ( is exploiting the vast in situ time series dataset provided by&lt;br&gt;
international oceanographic arrays to understand how climate and oceanic variability interact with&lt;br&gt;
human pressures to control ecosystem functioning, biodiversity, connectivity and goods and&lt;br&gt;
services. Twelve case studies located across the Atlantic are examining specific scenarios of &amp;lsquo;Blue&lt;br&gt;
Growth&amp;rsquo; development to inform marine spatial planning approaches.&lt;br&gt;
An integral part of this work is to consider implications of change on sensitive deep-water&lt;br&gt;
ecosystems that have been identified as significant and/or vulnerable and thus worthy of&lt;br&gt;
protection. The focus is on waters 200-2000m deep and on the implications of change for&lt;br&gt;
Vulnerable Marine Ecosystems (VMEs), Ecologically or Biologically Significant Areas (EBSAs) and&lt;br&gt;
High Seas Marine Protected Areas (MPAs).&lt;br&gt;
This one-day symposium on 12 May 2018 was aimed at scientists, practitioners, policy makers and&lt;br&gt;
representatives of civil society with expertise and interest in the future of these area-based&lt;br&gt;
management tools (ABMTs) or situations that could support ABMTs in the North Atlantic, and took&lt;br&gt;
place in Montreal immediately before the 4th World Conference on Marine Biodiversity.&lt;br&gt;
Presentations highlighted emerging results from ATLAS, and the status of ABMTs informed by&lt;br&gt;
predicted shifts in ecosystem dynamics were reviewed. Discussions examined opportunities and&lt;br&gt;
processes for adaptive management, and formulated recommendations for future priorities and&lt;br&gt;
directions. A postscript explains how this discussion fed into subsequent policy fora and informed&lt;br&gt;
papers published in 2019.&lt;/p&gt;</subfield>
