  • There is a problem with the presentation of HELCOM monitoring data: it is scatered in different documents and databases. Think about PLC, COMBINE, MORS and the development of indicators and monitoring programmes. Something must be done to present this data more efficiently and IN ONE PLACE.
  • The first one is COORDINATION. In order to achieve a cost-efficient monitoring HELCOM countries should put more emphasis on coordination. That’s one of the main points of the MAS. With monitoring information better presented this corrdination can be better achieved.
  • The second reason, probably the most important one, is that reporting and coordination of monitoring programmes is a MSFD requirement for EU countriesSuggestion: do it under RSC
  • Why a ”monitoring manual”? 1. It’s an online documentation. 2. Supports the HELCOM monitoring requirements 3. Supports the need of EU countries to report detailed information on their programmes. 4 demonstrates coordination...
