Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

Marine Policy has published a new Open Access paper, Assessing the impact of a new approach to ocean management: Evidence to date from five ocean plans. The results from this paper were presented a few months ago in our webinar with the EBM Tools Network, Ocean Planning’s Impact - An economic, environmental, and social retrospective. The study examined the economic, environmental, and social impacts of five established ocean plans: Massachusetts, Rhode Island, the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, Norway’s Barents Sea, and Belgium. You may read the full text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
