Increased provisioning of ecosystem goods (e.g. Food, water, etc)
Yes, through restoration and monitoring marine grasslands which are a nursery habitat for the prey residents such as fish and shellfish which the fishing community’s economy depends upon (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Improved water quality
Yes, through promoting water cleaning and monitoring marine grasslands (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Biodiversity conservation or increased biodiversity
Yes, through restoration and monitoring marine grasslands. Management of human activities within MPAs enhance the stability of the structural components of protected marine systems, reverting or arresting threat-induced trajectories of change (Fraschetti et al; 2013)
Ecosystem restoration and/or improved ecological connectivity
Yes, restoration of marine prairies.
Increased quality and quantity of green and blue infrastructures
Yes, through the restoration of marine prairies and reducing human threats (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Increased social interaction and inclusion
Yes, fisherwomen are involved on the education program as awareness raising agents of the "Shellfishing without Litter campaign" (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Increased willingness, participation, investment in NBS
Yes, through involving local communities and stakeholders (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Education, knowledge exchange and learning
Yes, this action promote the protection of the ocean through marine education and behavior change (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Low provisioning of ecosystem goods (e.g. Water, food)
Yes
Low water quality
Yes, it has been under human threats mainly due to fishing littering (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Loss of biodiversity
Yes, data indicates degradation of the marine biodiversity being the main threats for this ecosystem: Ocean Acidification. Caused by anthropogenic CO2 emissions, it affects the whole marine ecosystem (Bosello et al; 2015).
Ecosystem degradation
Yes, data indicates degradation of the marine prairies mainly due to human action being seaweeds and cystoseira species highly sensitive to several human disturbances, so that conspicuous historical declines, for at least a century, have been reported in many regions of the Mediterranean Sea (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Local unemployment
Yes, through protection and rehabilitation of marine prairies involving fisher women and the local community (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Limited knowledge about biodiversity
Yes
Good health and well-being (SDG3)
Yes
Sustainable cities and communities (SDG11)
Yes, by protecting the ocean and consequently fish and shellfish which the fishing community’s economy depends upon (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
Climate action, resilience, mitigation and adaptation (SDG13)
Yes
Aquatic biodiversity (SDG14)
Yes, this action focuses on the conservation of the marine prairies, where seagrass meadows are the nursery habitat for the prey of the resident dolphin population, fish and shellfish (OCEAN ALIVE, s.a.).
