MOSES hosts the 5th International Symposium on the Oceans in National Income Accounts

How can international ocean economy statistics and the use of this information by policy makers be improved?

MOSES project is hosting on the next 24-25 March the 5th International Symposium on the Oceans in National Income Accounts.

As well as showcasing the work of MOSES the 2 day symposium will involve representatives from government, industry, academia and international organisations involved in ocean economy accounting and statistics (including DG Marine Affairs, NOAA in the US and the OECD in Paris). These experts will share their national and international perspectives on progress made in measuring the ocean economy.

On the agenda is the discussion of ways in which international ocean economy statistics can be improved through satellite and natural capital accounting approaches as well as examining how the usage of such information by policy makers can be improved. The following topics will also be adressed:

  • The big challenges - Why we need improved ocean economy statistics
  • Revised national standards for ocean and related industry classification
  • Satellite accounting of ocean economic activities
  • Tools for improved usage of ocean economy statistics
  • Pathways to a sustainable ocean economy
  • Developing marine ecosystem income accounts
  • Issues for inclusion of marine ecosystem service benefit values in ocean accounts

Having in mind that the impact of current and potential human activities on marine and coastal ecosystems is a key determinant of ocean health and of the benefits received through ecosystem goods and services, MOSES aims to examine the Blue Growth path for sustainable development, the environmental pressures and impacts on the major sectors operating in the Atlantic Area. Lead by the National University of Ireland, Galway, the consortium has 8 partners from 5 countries and a total budget of 2.2M€.
