Working Group on the Ecosystem Approach to Ocean Health and Stressors: Mandates for Ecosystem-based Ocean Governance across Canada, the EU, and the US
Whereas previous AORA discussions have focused on mandate challenges that may be inhibiting the implementation of the EBM, this mandates Task Group workshop led to the insight that while there were some legislative gaps in governance that contrib-uted to the implementation challenges, it was the implementation structure of those mandates that was a significant locus for EBM challenges. This observation resulted from applying the policy-stages heuristic to the overall workshop discussion and de-marcating those aspects that were specific to governance and those that related to im-plementation. In this analysis, it was concluded that there were sufficient legislative mandates to support the decision making to proceed with an EBM approach. Some of the gaps that remained included mechanisms to empower cross jurisdictional or inter-departmental decision making. The majority of identified challenges to the successful implementation of EBM were specific to the implementation process itself, such as overcoming political and administrative boundaries.
