New MESMA paper: could EU marine conservation policy benfit from systematic conservation planning?

A new MESMA paper has been published based on the analyses performed in the Greek case study. MESMA has compared the results of the systematic analysis in which priority areas for conservation were identified with the existing Natura 2000 sites in terms of goal achievement, area requirements and costs. It is suggested that the use of systematic conservation planning and related computational tools could benefit the selection of European marine priority areas, especially in the context of ecosystem-based marine spatial management.

The reference is listed in the MESMA publication list.
