ObjectivesThe INTERREG VA SeaMonitor project is a novel and comprehensive project focussing on a wide range of issues across the Programme Area (Scotland, Ireland and N. Ireland). It will directly deliver the INTERREG V objective of developing cross-border capacity for the monitoring and management of marine protected areas and species. It will result in a corresponding increase in cross-border monitoring and management capacity. This will facilitate the development and growth of a regional 'blue economy' based on its maritime resources and the alignment of regional activities with the EU's Atlantic Strategy through the potential of e.g. developing and strengthening the growth of marine tourism, providing management plans and enabling sustainable development to occur in often sensitive environments.
