Theme B - Biodiversity and Ecosystems
The Biodiversity Theme of the JAMP covers both the state of ecosystem components and pressures from human activities. Monitoring and assessment under the Biodiversity and Ecosystem Theme of the CEMP (Theme B) has the aim of providing information on:
a. the status of biodiversity components of marine ecosystems and how these change in space and time (monitoring under the management of the Biodiversity Committee - BDC);
b. the extent, intensity and duration of human activities and pressures and how these change in space and time (monitoring under the management of the Environmental Impact of Human Activities Committee - EIHA).
