Strengthening science-based policy in the Black Sea
Vulnerable and unique, the Black Sea’s ecosystem services are under threat from multi-stressors such as pollution and overfishing because of climate and anthropogenic pressures. The overarching aim of the EU-funded BRIDGE-BS project is assessing the current state of the Black Sea ecosystems, their services, and resilience to the multi-stressors, and creating the necessary means to manage these ecosystems sustainably. For that, it will use an interdisciplinary approach based on three nodes: service dynamics, blue growth incubators, and empowered citizens. The project will use pilot study sites at the regional level, with findings contributing to work packages addressing the four pillars of the Black Sea SRIA. This way, BRIDGE-BS strives to achieve a healthy, resilient and productive Black Sea by 2030.
