Climate Change in the Barents Sea
This is the third and final meeting of the project BarEcoRe, funded by the Norwegian Research Council. While previous meetings were held in Norway, this time the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) provides the facilities and organizes the meeting, at UNESCO Headquarters, to support the project in its final phase.
The objective of BarEcoRe is to evaluate the effects of global environmental change on the future structure and resilience of the Barents Sea ecosystem. This will be studied by investigating the effects of past changes in climate and fisheries on the Barents Sea ecosystem, by developing indicators of ecosystem resilience, diversity and structure, and by forecasting the possible future states of the Barents Sea ecosystem under particular environmental and fisheries scenarios.
