Ecosystem approach

The Ecosystem Approach is a strategy for the integrated management of land, water and living resources that promotes conservation and sustainable use in an equitable way, as stated by Convention of Biological Diversity.

In 2008, the Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention agreed to progressively apply the Ecosystem Approach to the management of human activities in the Mediterranean region to better protect the marine and coastal environments, and adopted a roadmap for its implementation.
