The Harmful Algae Bloom Solutions (HAB-S) Programme will be co-created with stakeholders, leading to improved data resources, innovative observing instrumentation, and sound knowledge for decision-making to manage and mitigate HAB impacts to human health and wellbeing-related activities (aquaculture, fisheries, desalination, tourism) and the environment.

HAB-S aims to enhance knowledge and understanding of the causes and effects of HABs at the level of scientists, societal stakeholders, and the public at large, through comprehensive public awareness campaigns, education initiatives, and interdisciplinary solutions that reduce the frequency and severity of HAB events and minimize their adverse effects on the social, economic and natural environments.
