Policy implications of the ATLAS Project

Turner, PJ; Johnson, DE; Roberts, JM

This high-level summary brings together the key policy-relevant results of the four-year, European Union Horizon 2020 ATLAS Project: A trans-Atlantic assessment and deep-sea ecosystem-based spatial management plan for Europe (May 2016 – October 2020). The importance of these results to decision makers as well as their relevance to established policy objectives and on-going policy discussions is highlighted, with discussion focusing on five main themes:

1. Biodiversity, ecosystem functioning and the need for sustainable Blue Growth;
2. Climate change and Area Based Management Tools;
3. Connectivity and Area Based Management Tools;
4. ATLAS tools to inform ocean governance and sustainable Blue Growth; and
5. ATLAS contributions to the Galway Statement and research dissemination
