OSPAR's Intermediate Assessment 2017 was launched yesterday.

This assessment, covering both status and trends across the North-East Atlantic, presents a picture of this important marine area and includes consideration of biological diversity, eutrophication, hazardous substances, radioactive substances, offshore oil and gas industries, a range of other human pressures, ocean acidification and the impact of a changing ocean climate. Attention is given to socio-economic analysis and the methodology required to undertake a full ecosystem assessment. Finally, the IA 2017 presents key messages and headline information that will set the foundation for progress and development.
