"Practical Framework for Outlining the Integration of the Ecosystem Approach into Marine Planning in England", for Marine Management Organisation, with ABPmer, 2013: The aim of this project was to outline a framework that demonstrates how MMO’s marine planning could improve their application of an ecosystem approach. In doing so, the project outlined required evidence and data, highlighted evidence and data gaps, recommended methods for spatial analysis of trade-offs and applied the ecosystem framework to East inshore and offshore marine plans. The project involved a scoping workshop and a stakeholder engagement workshop as well as a workshop report and a final report.
