About

Designing intelligent climate policy requires understanding to what extent climate change jeopardizes ecosystem functioning and services, and the potential for effective and efficient Nature-based Solutions (NBS) to safeguard biodiversity contributions to people. FutureMARES develops evidence-based guidance at appropriate spatial and temporal scales for our three NBS (Effective Restoration, Effective Conservation and Sustainable Harvesting) across a broad range of European and other marine and transitional systems resulting from a guided process leading to in-depth knowledge integrating climate, social, ecological and economic systems.
