From marine ecosystem accounting to integrated governance
for sustainable planning of marine and coastal areas
From marine ecosystem accounting to integrated governance for sustainable planning of marine and coastal areas

Outcomes

Project official outputs include the development of the ecosystem service mapping and modelling in marine realm; developed concepts of ecosystem accounting framework in the Baltic Sea environment; developed Natural Capital Accounting concept in the pilot areas by linking the maps of ecosystem services developed with already existing data sources on relevant economic sectors as well as created sustainability compass towards sustainable development goals – indicator based assessment tool for evaluating the sustainability of different marine sectors and a synthetic decision support geoportal for sustainable maritime planning in pilot areas.

Output O.T1.1. “High-resolution maps on the intensity and extent of ecosystem services supply in the transnational pilot area” (2022)

Output O.T2.1.1. “Conceptual model of Natural Capital Accounting” (2022)

Output O.T2.2.1. Regional tools for assessing feed-backs and trade-offs between marine ecosystem and anthropocentric systems (2022). Part 1: User guide for the social-economic models implemented in the geoportal

Output O.T2.2.2. Regional tools for assessing feed-backs and trade-offs between marine ecosystem and anthropocentric systems (2022). Part 2: Explore the relations between cultural services and environmental condition

Output O.T4.1. A functional decision-support geo-portal to support joint decision-making and seek sustainable cross-border planning solutions (2022): http://www.sea.ee/marea

 

Project communication deliverables cover the variety of topics related to the Baltic Sea and it’s provided benefits, ecosystem services in maritime spatial planning, geoportal as a decision support tool aiming to maintain the sustainable management of common natural resources in the Baltic Sea region.

Policy brief “Ecosystem Services in Maritime Spatial Planning” (2022) points that extent of ecosystems and their condition define the ecosystem’s capacity to provide services and these valuable assets should be accounted for maritime spatial planning (Deliverable 6.2.1.)

Policy brief “PlanWise4Blue geoportal for sustainable maritime spatial planning” (2022). Geoportal is a decision support tool aiming to maintain the sustainable management of common natural resources in the Baltic Sea region (Deliverable 6.2.1.)
