BfN Schriften 218 - Countdown 2010 for Marine Ecosystems
The participants of the workshop adopted the “Key Messages for Enhancing Marine Conservation" which clearly emphasize the important role and responsibility of the European Union in improving the conservation and sustainable use of marine biodiversity.
The Key Messages for Enhancing Marine Conservation aim at charting the way forward for marine conservation. They are designed for delivering input into policies primarily at EU level. They are submitted as contribution to the Green Paper Consultation Process, the development of the EU-Marine Strategy Directive and they will be presented at relevant conferences.
