Towards better government of the Channel ecosystem

The first step in the PEGASEAS project was to review outputs from the relevant INTERREG IVa projects (see projects )
and identify the key lessons related to the improvement of governance in the Channel ecosystem. The results were
compiled under six themes:

  • Marine Ecosystems Dynamics and Management
  • Management and Use of Information and Data
  • Pressure and Activity on the Marine Environment
  • Governance at Multiple Scales in the Channel
  • Partnerships
  • Communication and Stakeholders Involvement

Pegaseas-governance

For each of these themes, questions of particular relevance to good governance in the Channel were identified and
answered. Short PowerPoint presentations , which may be useful for general interest or education, on each of these
questions can be found at the following link:

A report presenting the complete analysis around each of the themes and a summary of each of the projects reviewed
can be found in the following link
“TOWARDS BETTER GOVERNANCE OF THE CHANNEL ECOSYSTEM”

The target audience for this document includes local, regional, national, cross-Channel marine governance practitioners
and policy-makers. Universities and research institutions may also find much of interest in the report.
