A holistic coastal assessment and reporting framework balances economic, societal, and environmental

A holistic coastal assessment and reporting framework balances economic, societal, and environmental

The University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science has pioneered the use of ecosystem health report cards as synthetic tools to assess and communicate ecosystem health status. These ecosystem health report cards are evolving to include components that assess pressure, state, and response indicators, as well as indicators that are relevant to societal and economic sectors. UMCES' work to date suggests that a new assessment and reporting framework can communicate the pressure, state, and management response from a multi-sectoral approach. In this presentation, Dr. Kelsey proposes an approach to customizing this framework, illustrated by current report card development projects for the Chesapeake Bay, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Mississippi River Basin.
