Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM/EA) of Arctic marine ecosystems

Concept paper on further cooperation under the Arctic Council on Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM/EA) of Arctic marine ecosystems

Objective

The need for ecosystem-based management (EBM/EA) to ensure sustainable use and protection of the marine environment is widely recognized by the international community, the Arctic Council, and the Arctic States and Permanent Participants of the Council. EBM, therefore, is a suitable framework for efforts to enhance cooperation on Arctic marine stewardship under the Arctic Council.

Activities

  • A concept paper exploring the case for enhanced transboundary cooperation and coordination of Ecosystem Based Management of the Arctic marine environment
  • A set of actions will be proposed to develop such cooperation further in the coming four years
