Marine Biodiversity loss is continuing to decline despite current conservation efforts. Reversing the decline in biodiversity requires rapid roll out of effective conservation measures that can also enable a sustainable and resilient blue economy. Social-ecological systems-thinking and Ecosystem-Based Management are globally recognized tools to enable balanced marine development and conservation.
The main goal of marine sabres is to conserve and protect biodiversity by integrating sustainable ecosystems and a resilient blue economy. For this purpose, Marine SABRES will co-design as Simple Social Ecological Systems approach (the Simple SES) to rapidly enable and upscale EBM across Europe and abroad. Marine SABRES will also carry out the following actions:
- Set European marine management on a course to reverse biodiversity decline.
- Conserve and protect biodiversity by integrating sustainable ecosystems and a resilient blue economy enable managers to make sustainable decisions.
- Empower citizens to engage with marine biodiversity conservation.
- Promote sustainable development and in coastal and marine sectors.
