Supporting implementation of the MSFD: Developing ICZM Guidelines and Ecosystem Services Assessment Tools Scientific Workshop, 14 January, Liverpool

This workshop, taking place as part of the Celtic Seas Partnership Life+ Project, aims to bring together scientists and practitioners with expertise and interests related to Marine Strategy Framework Directive implementation to exchange current research and good practice experience and to inform the direction of two sections of the Celtic Seas Partnership project that are being delivered by the University of Liverpool: the development of ICZM Guidelines and Ecosystem Services Assessment Tools. There will be a poster display of related research and initiatives as part of the workshop and the organisers would welcome contributions to this. An evening programme of activities will also be offered for those that are interested in extending this networking opportunity.

The Celtic Seas Partneship is a pioneering four year EC LIFE+ funded project that is led by WWF in association with the University of Liverpool, Dublin Regional Authority, the Natural Environment Research Council and SeaWeb. It aims to bring stakeholders across the Celtic Seas together to find workable ways of implementing the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) and helping to shape how their marine environment will be managed in the years to come.  The project will develop tools, experience, data and information resources that can contribute to the delivery of Good Environmental Status.
