This two-step approach to ecosystem management has been implemented in a suite of integrated, web-based analysis tools called an Ecosystem Management Tool (EMT). Use of the EMT allows an analyst to link political processes and goals to ecosystem processes and desired ecosystem outcomes. The EMT’s central component is a quantitative. Lakes is mandated in A Joint Strategic Plan for Management of Great Lakes Fisheries (Joint Plan) (Great Lakes Fishery Commission ). That document was adopted in and revised in and The Joint Plan represents a commitment to cooperative management on the Great Lakes by all state, federal, tribal, and provincial agencies.
Ecosystem-Based Management: Adopt ecosystem-based management as a foundational principle for the comprehensive management of the ocean, our coasts, and the Great Lakes. Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning: Implement comprehensive, integrated, ecosystem-based coastal and marine spatial planning and management in the United States. Developing Ecological Criteria for Sustainable Water Management in Minnesota (PDF) ( pp, MB) The goal of this project was to develop recommendations and indicators for ecological criteria for instream flow protection in Minnesota, with special attention to rivers and streams in Minnesota’s Great Lakes basin. Products were developed.
The ecosystem approach is a tool; it provides a framework that can be used to implement the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity, including the work on, inter alia, protected areas and ecological networks. There is no single correct way to apply the ecosystem approach to management of land, water, and living resources. Introduction. In , parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) adopted as their primary framework for action the “ecosystem approach” (EA) and defined it as “a strategy for the integrated management of land, water, and living resources that promotes conservation and sustainable use in an equitable way” (CBD SBSTTA ).Since then, the term has become increasingly.

Sincethe Parties (United States and Canada, ) to the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement have been working collaboratively to achieve the purpose of the Agreement “to restore and maintain the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the waters of the Great Lakes Basin Ecosystem”.

It is the primary framework for action under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and. Fishery and water quality agencies both have similar goals of restoring degraded fish communities and habitat in Great Lakes Areas of Concern (AOCs) using an ecosystem approach.
To implement an. The concepts of ecosystem and integrity effectively entered the binational political arena in the Great Lakes Basin in the early 's. They were brought together explicitly in the statement of the purpose of the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement.
The Protocol to that Agreement has helped to specify the practical meaning of ecosystem integrity of the Great Lakes Basin.

The concept of the Ecosystem Approach to management (EA) has been around for at least 30 years and has been extensively discussed, elaborated and developed.
This approach is known by a number of different names; ecosystem-based management (EBM), ecosystem approach to management (EAM), or simply the ecosystem approach, EA, which is the term used. ecosystem approach; The Great Lakes Research Advisory Board recommends to the Inter- national Joint C ommis s ion: 1.
that the Parties and the Commission explicitly recognize as policy the need for an ecosystem approach to problem identification, research and management in the Great Lakes Basin; 2.
that the parties extend or amend the Boundary. In Canada and the United States concluded an agreement for the protection and enhancement of water quality in the Great Lakes based on the ecosystem approach to management.
Since ratification of this agreement, little progress has been made in practical application of this concept to basin-wide management for the Great Lakes. Great Lakes Management Description: This workshop invites participation from individuals with experience and/or interest in (1) the application of ecosystem service valuation to inform policy, planning, and management; and (2) maintaining a robust community of practice for ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes social science.

The Ecosystem-based Approach: A Synthesis. Ecosystem-based management must have an understanding of the integrity of ecosystems (how they are structured and the principles on which they operate), and must promote research in order to further that understanding.
This is one side of the coin. This page book is a compilation of case studies chapters describing bioregional assessments from around the country, including the Forest Ecosystem Management Assessment Team, Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin Assessments, Everglades-South. Ecosystem-based management is an environmental management approach that recognizes the full array of interactions within an ecosystem, including humans, rather than considering single issues, species, or ecosystem services in isolation.
It can be applied to studies in the terrestrial and marine environments with challenges being attributed to both. In the marine realm, they are highly. The ecosystem approach can facilitate practical management by ecosystem managers (whether local communities or national policy-makers).
