Norwegian Ministry of Climate and Environment – Norway

The Nordic project Marine Management and Climate seeks to strengthen our knowledge base and co-operation on how climate change in Nordic sea areas can be incorporated into comprehensive, integrated, and sustainable ecosystem-based management.

One work strand is to model the expected effects of climate change in all the Nordic sea areas towards 2100 by downscaling global model scenarios (CMIP6). The other work strand will compile and evaluate best available knowledge on possible solutions for adaptation to climate change. This includes nature-based solutions by means of conservation and restoration of ecosystem functions and services, appropriate size and placement of spatial management measures (such as MPAs) and potential synergies between offshore wind farms and sustainable utilization of biological production. This knowledge will form the basis for advice to governments and the Nordic Council of Ministers on sustainable marine management in a climate change perspective.
