From June 23 to 25, the Dutch island of Texel hosted the final meeting of the FutureMARES Project, an EU-funded initiative. Scientists from various institutions gathered to discuss the final results of this research project on climate change and marine ecosystems.

Future Oceans Lab was represented by Haritz Ayarza, Elena Ojea, and Juan Bueno, who participated both in person and virtually. Juan Bueno presented the group’s work on Work Package 5 of the project, focused on Climate Risk Assessments.

FutureMARES has examined the relationship between climate change, marine biodiversity, and ecosystem services, focusing on three main strategies: effective restoration, effective conservation, and nature-inclusive harvesting.

Participants analyzed the findings obtained from five global study regions, with the aim of providing scientific advice for policies that use nature-based solutions to protect biodiversity and ecosystem services in the face of future climate change.

This final meeting marks an important milestone in the culmination of the FutureMARES Project, whose results are expected to significantly influence the management and conservation of marine ecosystems in the context of climate change.
