The main output of this project will be to understand and quantify the sustainability dimension of Blue Growth with respect to the potential environmental impact of key strategic marine sectors, such as marine and coastal tourism.
Firstly, the MARNET framework will be used to estimate the size and growth of key strategic marine sectors at the regional level. This will facilitate the monitoring of progress in the Atlantic ocean economy since the implementation of the Atlantic Strategy and the Atlantic Action Plan.
The project will also result in the development of integrated marine sustainability assessment toolkits and sustainable transition plans for key strategic marine sectors using case studies.
Visualisation tools such as heat maps for vulnerability of Atlantic regions in achieving ‘blue growth’ while preserving the marine environment will also be developed.
Output results will be uploaded to this page later in the lifetime of the project, please visit again later
