Preface: European Commission’s’ scientific Support to Policies’ Action EnviEFH: Environmental Approach to Essential Fish Habitat Designation
Under the Sixth Framework Programme (FP6) for research, the Commission of the European Communities (CEC) has launched its ‘Scientific Support to Policies’ (SSP) initiative promoting science to the decision-making process. To improve the quality of policy decisions and to promote the participation of researchers in the policy arena, CEC has funded a number of SSP actions in three priority areas: sustainable management of natural resources, health and security, and economic potential of an enlarging Europe. EnviEFH (Environmental Approach to Essential Fish Habitat Designation) was a 27-month SSP Action (December 2005–February 2008) in the priority area of sustainable management of natural resources under the theme of Fisheries and Aquaculture.
