AORA Working Group on the Ecosystem Approach to Ocean Health and Stressors. Vision document. June 2019
The Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance Working Group on the Ecosystem Approach to Ocean Health and Stressors (AORA EA2OHS) is a trilateral working group (CA/EU/US) that was formed to promote research to understand the North Atlantic Ocean in support of ecosystem-based management.
Recognizing that the Atlantic Ocean is a shared resource and responsibility, the AORA EA2OHS seeks to advance understanding of the Atlantic Ocean and its dynamic systems to:
- Improve ocean health
- Enhance ocean stewardship
- Promote the sustainable use and management of its resources.
With funding from the European Commission's Horizon 2020 programme, work package 4 of the Atlantic Ocean Research Alliance Coordination and Support Action helped facilitate the work of the group. Work has focused on preparing the vision/science plan on research directions, priorities, synergies, and complementarities.
