  1. 1. Linus Hammar W 2/2 Applying ecosystem approach Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management (HELCOM-VASAB) #BalticMSP Symphony- a cumulative assessment tool for MSP Senior Analyst
  2. 2. What is the problem? 2
  3. 3. Symphony supports the Ecosystem Approach in Swedish MSP • We want to compare the environmental impact of different plan alternatives • Cumulative impact is what matters • We develop a tool called Symphony • Symphony is based on a scientifically established method (Halpern et al 2008) 11/28/2016 3
  4. 4. How Symphony works 11/28/2016 Maps of ecosystem components1 Maps of marine pressures2 Sensitivity matrix based on experts3 Baseline results4 Link pressures to maritime plan5 Results for plan iteration6 A more sustainable marine plan7
  5. 5. Ecosystem components in Symphony We have produced about 30 maps of ecosystem components based on existing data • Examples: Benthic habitats, fish spawning areas, porpoises, seabirds, plankton • Aggregated maps indicate biodiversity hotspots and sensitive areas 11/28/2016 5 Ecosystem diversity map (Swedish draft) Ecosystem sensitivity map (Swedish draft) Yellow more, blue less The maps do not fully cover areas outside Swedish waters and EEZ and do not represent the full Baltic Scope area
  6. 6. Human pressures in Symphony We have produced about 25 maps of human pressures based on existing data • Examples: Shipping noise, fishing, military explosions, wind farm bird avoidance, eutrophication, coastal exploitation • About a third of the pressures are related to MSP • Aggregated maps indicate areas where pressures are many and intense 11/28/2016 6 Human pressure map (Swedish draft) Red more, blue less The maps do not fully cover areas outside Swedish waters and EEZ and do not represent the full Baltic Scope area
  7. 7. Cumulative impact in Symphony The cumulative impact is based on • Number and intensity of ecosystem components • Number and intensity of human pressures • How sensitive each ecosystem component is to each human pressure This map helps to identify areas of concern, and allows us to compare the environmental impact of different plan alternative 11/28/2016 7 Cumulative impact map (Swedish draft) Red more, blue less The maps do not fully cover areas outside Swedish waters and EEZ and do not represent the full Baltic Scope area
  8. 8. Ecosystem sensitivity map (Swedish draft) Symphony for Ecosystem Approach • We identify areas of particular sensitivity • We examine the cumulative impact of the MSP draft • We identify areas where impact is too high • We analyze which pressures that contribute to the bad situation • We use this information to discuss with stakeholders • We develop alternative plan • We examine the cumulative impact of the new alternative plan • We iterate until good plan is found • The method is transparent • The method can be used in any country and as a basis for transboundary consultations • HELCOM is using similar method, for assessment 11/28/2016 8 Cumulative impact map (Swedish draft) Yellow more, blue less Red more, blue less
