New Resources to Support MSFD Decision Makers
A range of new decision support resources designed to inform the development of a science-policy interface to underpin the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD) have been developed through the STAGES project.
The STAGES MSFD Decision Support Resources can be downloaded individually or in a convenient e-package (.zip file format) from the project’s website: www.stagesproject.eu/stages-msfd-decision-support-resources
This e-package includes pragmatic and ready-to-use recommendations for the establishment of an effective EU science-policy platform to support the implementation of the MSFD. These recommendations are based on results of extensive stakeholder consultations, surveys and desk top studies, which identified key MSFD-relevant projects of interest and knowledge gaps where further research will be needed to support MSFD implementation.
