Introducing the
Celtic Seas Partnership
Celtic Seas Partnership Project
• EC LIFE+ funded project, with a budget of €4 million
• Four year project: January 2013 to December 2016
• Project partnership led by WWF-UK
• Other project partners:
• University of Liverpool
• Dublin Regional Authority
• Natural Environment Research Council (British Oceanographic
Data Centre)
• SeaWeb (France)
• Follows on from successful PISCES project
Overall Aim:
To demonstrate successful approaches and best practice through
multi-stakeholder collaboration to guide practical implementation of
the Marine Strategy Framework Directive and
contribute to Good Environmental Status
of the Celtic Seas Marine Region.
Responding to ever busier seas…
• Growing number of activities and
uses
• Complex management challenges
• Multiple marine stakeholders & forums
• Multiple marine laws and policies, at
national and international level
...& evolving marine policies

Local ICZM Strategies
National ICZM Strategies
National Flood and Coastal Erosion
Risk Management Strategy
Key trans-boundary issues
• Lack of existing mechanisms for cross-boundary discussions /
information exchange for people directly involved in coastal
and marine activity
• Lack of opportunity for stakeholders to talk
to each other, governments and scientists
• Lack of opportunity for stakeholders to share
data and information
Marine Strategy Framework Directive
• Directive 2008/56/EC of the European Parliament and of
the Council of 17 June 2008 establishing a framework for
community action in the field of marine environmental
policy (Marine Strategy Framework Directive)
• Provides the environmental pillar of the EU’s Integrated
Maritime Policy
• Complements and fills gaps from the Water
Framework and other Directives (e.g. Habitats
and Birds)
• UK law: Statutory Instrument (The Marine Strategy
Regulations 2010)
MSFD Aim and Delivery
• Overall aim to deliver sustainable use of the seas by delivering
Good Environmental Status in all EU waters by 2020 (to protect
resources economic and social marine activity depend on)
• Requires application of the ecosystem approach to management
of human activities
• Sets out European Marine Regions based on
environmental and geographic criteria: the North
East Atlantic Ocean has 2 sub-regions:
• Greater North Sea
• Celtic Seas
• Will operate via Member State Marine Strategies
©DaveWillisMoutainsportPthotography
Celtic Seas Marine Region
• The Celtic Seas Marine Region is one
of the 10 MSFD sub-regions
• Includes the western seaboard of UK
and Republic of Ireland, north of
Scotland and northern France – and
the whole of the Irish Sea
• Diverse range of marine habitats and
species, wide range of maritime
industries and other uses/users
Ecosystem Approach
An “ecosystem-based approach” means the collective pressure of
human activities
• is kept within levels compatible with the
achievement of good environmental status
• does not compromise the capacity of
marine ecosystems to respond to
human-induced changes.
Good Environmental Status (GES)
• Use of the marine environment must be kept
at a sustainable level that safeguards
potential uses and activities by current and
future generations
• The structure, functions and processes of
marine ecosystems have to be fully
considered, marine species and habitats
must be protected and human-induced
decline of biodiversity prevented
©DaveWillisMoutainsportPthotography
• The overall state of the environment in marine waters provides
ecologically diverse and dynamic oceans and seas which are
healthy and productive
How GES is defined - 1
GES is based on 11 qualitative ‘descriptors’ of the marine
environment laid out in the MSFD:
1. Biological diversity is maintained
2. Non-indigenous species don’t impact adversely
3. Fish stocks within safe biological limits –
healthy age/size distribution
4. Marine Food Web at normal abundance /
diversity
5. Human-induced eutrophication (and its effects)
are minimised
How GES is defined - 2
8. Contaminants are not at levels that cause
pollution effects
9. Contaminants in fish / other edibles do not
exceed levels set by EC or other standards
10. Properties and quantities of marine litter do not
cause harm to the coastal and marine
environment
11. Introduction of energy, e.g. underwater noise, is
at levels that do not adversely affect the marine
environment
6. Sea floor integrity ensures ecosystems are safeguarded
7. Permanent alteration of hydrographic conditions does not
adversely affect ecosystems
MSFD - GES
What we aim to do
Support the goal of ‘Good Environmental Status’ by 2020 by bringing
governments & marine stakeholders together to develop:
• Voluntary measures to achieve GES (e.g. noise, litter)
• Solutions for tackling trans-boundary challenges
• Solutions for co-location and managing marine conflicts
• Solutions for joint ICZM / MSFD implementation – good practice
case studies and guidelines
• A guide to integrating/harmonising engagement mechanisms and
marine data
• Proposals for a Celtic Seas Region-level Celtic Seas Partnership
that can be used as a model for other European marine regions
External advice to the project
Observer Board
• MSFD Government leads in each country (France, Republic of
Ireland, UK, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man)
• European Commission: DG Environment
• OSPAR Commission
Expert Advisory Group - experts with knowledge of:
• EU policy: MSFD, Marine Planning, Integrated Coastal Management
• Ecosystem-based management
• Stakeholder engagement
• Trans-boundary governance
• Data & information management
Recent and forthcoming activities
• Jul-Dec 2013 – building stakeholder engagement (meetings, etc.)
• Oct 2013 - Launch event, Liverpool (1st of 3 annual events)
 c.70 delegates developed over 80 ideas for MSFD measures
- 19 draft measures worked up in more detail
 33 case studies identified illustrating co-location and trans-
boundary challenges & possible solutions
 Survey issued after the event giving others a chance to
comment on & add to list of possible measures
• Jan 2014 – 1st Scientific Workshop, Liverpool
• 18th June 2014 - 1st England Country Workshop, Plymouth

Celtic Seas Partnership- Caroline Salthouse

  • 1. Caroline Salthouse Celtic Seas Partnership Stakeholder Engagement Officer, NW England North West Coastal Forum www.celticseaspartnership.eu Twitter/celticseas Introducing the Celtic Seas Partnership
  • 2. Celtic Seas Partnership Project • EC LIFE+ funded project, with a budget of €4 million • Four year project: January 2013 to December 2016 • Project partnership led by WWF-UK • Other project partners: • University of Liverpool • Dublin Regional Authority • Natural Environment Research Council (British Oceanographic Data Centre) • SeaWeb (France) • Follows on from successful PISCES project
  • 3. Overall Aim: To demonstrate successful approaches and best practice through multi-stakeholder collaboration to guide practical implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive and contribute to Good Environmental Status of the Celtic Seas Marine Region.
  • 4. Responding to ever busier seas… • Growing number of activities and uses • Complex management challenges • Multiple marine stakeholders & forums • Multiple marine laws and policies, at national and international level ...& evolving marine policies
  • 5. SUSTAIN meeting, th Landuse Tourism Oil &Gas Coastal Defence Ports & Navigation Military Activities Culture Conservation Dredging & Disposal Submarine Cables Fishing Renewable Energy Marine Recreation Mineral Extraction Mariculture Source: 2004 Defra study on MSPP carried out by ABP Marine Environmental Research (ABPmer), Terence O’Rourke, Risk & Policy Analysts, Geotek, Hartley Anderson and Coastal Management for Sustainability
  • 6. A plethora of plans and legislation… EMS management plans Marine Strategy Framework Directive Water Framework Directive Marine Plans Marine and Coastal Access Act 2009 and Marine Policy Statement Birds and Habitats Directives Shellfish Directive Coast Protection Act 1949 Flood and Water Management Act 2010 Bathing Water Directive Shoreline Management Plans Local ICZM Strategies National ICZM Strategies National Flood and Coastal Erosion Risk Management Strategy
  • 7. Key trans-boundary issues • Lack of existing mechanisms for cross-boundary discussions / information exchange for people directly involved in coastal and marine activity • Lack of opportunity for stakeholders to talk to each other, governments and scientists • Lack of opportunity for stakeholders to share data and information
  • 8. Marine Strategy Framework Directive • Directive 2008/56/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 June 2008 establishing a framework for community action in the field of marine environmental policy (Marine Strategy Framework Directive) • Provides the environmental pillar of the EU’s Integrated Maritime Policy • Complements and fills gaps from the Water Framework and other Directives (e.g. Habitats and Birds) • UK law: Statutory Instrument (The Marine Strategy Regulations 2010)
  • 9. MSFD Aim and Delivery • Overall aim to deliver sustainable use of the seas by delivering Good Environmental Status in all EU waters by 2020 (to protect resources economic and social marine activity depend on) • Requires application of the ecosystem approach to management of human activities • Sets out European Marine Regions based on environmental and geographic criteria: the North East Atlantic Ocean has 2 sub-regions: • Greater North Sea • Celtic Seas • Will operate via Member State Marine Strategies ©DaveWillisMoutainsportPthotography
  • 10. Celtic Seas Marine Region • The Celtic Seas Marine Region is one of the 10 MSFD sub-regions • Includes the western seaboard of UK and Republic of Ireland, north of Scotland and northern France – and the whole of the Irish Sea • Diverse range of marine habitats and species, wide range of maritime industries and other uses/users
  • 11. Ecosystem Approach An “ecosystem-based approach” means the collective pressure of human activities • is kept within levels compatible with the achievement of good environmental status • does not compromise the capacity of marine ecosystems to respond to human-induced changes.
  • 12. Good Environmental Status (GES) • Use of the marine environment must be kept at a sustainable level that safeguards potential uses and activities by current and future generations • The structure, functions and processes of marine ecosystems have to be fully considered, marine species and habitats must be protected and human-induced decline of biodiversity prevented ©DaveWillisMoutainsportPthotography • The overall state of the environment in marine waters provides ecologically diverse and dynamic oceans and seas which are healthy and productive
  • 13. How GES is defined - 1 GES is based on 11 qualitative ‘descriptors’ of the marine environment laid out in the MSFD: 1. Biological diversity is maintained 2. Non-indigenous species don’t impact adversely 3. Fish stocks within safe biological limits – healthy age/size distribution 4. Marine Food Web at normal abundance / diversity 5. Human-induced eutrophication (and its effects) are minimised
  • 14. How GES is defined - 2 8. Contaminants are not at levels that cause pollution effects 9. Contaminants in fish / other edibles do not exceed levels set by EC or other standards 10. Properties and quantities of marine litter do not cause harm to the coastal and marine environment 11. Introduction of energy, e.g. underwater noise, is at levels that do not adversely affect the marine environment 6. Sea floor integrity ensures ecosystems are safeguarded 7. Permanent alteration of hydrographic conditions does not adversely affect ecosystems
  • 16. What we aim to do Support the goal of ‘Good Environmental Status’ by 2020 by bringing governments & marine stakeholders together to develop: • Voluntary measures to achieve GES (e.g. noise, litter) • Solutions for tackling trans-boundary challenges • Solutions for co-location and managing marine conflicts • Solutions for joint ICZM / MSFD implementation – good practice case studies and guidelines • A guide to integrating/harmonising engagement mechanisms and marine data • Proposals for a Celtic Seas Region-level Celtic Seas Partnership that can be used as a model for other European marine regions
  • 17. External advice to the project Observer Board • MSFD Government leads in each country (France, Republic of Ireland, UK, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man) • European Commission: DG Environment • OSPAR Commission Expert Advisory Group - experts with knowledge of: • EU policy: MSFD, Marine Planning, Integrated Coastal Management • Ecosystem-based management • Stakeholder engagement • Trans-boundary governance • Data & information management
  • 18. Recent and forthcoming activities • Jul-Dec 2013 – building stakeholder engagement (meetings, etc.) • Oct 2013 - Launch event, Liverpool (1st of 3 annual events)  c.70 delegates developed over 80 ideas for MSFD measures - 19 draft measures worked up in more detail  33 case studies identified illustrating co-location and trans- boundary challenges & possible solutions  Survey issued after the event giving others a chance to comment on & add to list of possible measures • Jan 2014 – 1st Scientific Workshop, Liverpool • 18th June 2014 - 1st England Country Workshop, Plymouth
  • 19. Timeline: CSP & MSFD Monitoring Programme Develop Programmes of Measures Implement Programmes of Measures Third multi- national workshop Second multi- national workshop First multi- national workshop Country workshops Country workshops
  • 20. How can you get involved? The views, knowledge and experience of stakeholders will shape the project and its outcomes as we move forward. Help us to achieve the project aims by: • Getting involved in workshops and consultations as the project progresses (contact Caroline to be kept informed) • Signing up for the e-newsletter at www.celticseaspartnerhip.eu • Checking the website news blog and following us on twitter @celticseas • And last but not least thinking about what you do that impacts on the marine environment and how you might do it differently!
