Background to Project
An increased demand for marine space requires adequate management by marine planners to ensure that biodiversity targets are not compromised and to reduce conflict between sectors and marine users.
The project is being run by a steering group made up of members including marine planning leads from multiple organisations and agencies across all/most administrations in the UK. This includes JNCC (project managers), NatureScot, Natural England, Natural Resources Wales, The Marine Management Organisation, Marine Directorate of Scottish Government and Cefas.
1. To assess the relative merits of known cumulative assessment approaches, and their suitability for use at a strategic level during the preparation of marine plans.
2. To recommend a preferred approach to strategic level CEA for marine planners, including any method development that would further improve the approach.
3. To define data, evidence and research priorities to further refine CEA approach(es) for marine planning.
