Strategic Initiative on Biodiversity Science and Advice



The Strategic Initiative on Biodiversity Advice and Science (SIBAS) was established to:

  1. respond to immediate political drivers and promote ICES capacity;
  2. co-ordinate, and provide a forum for, scientific research to address biodiversity issues.

SIBAS aims to:

  1. advance biodiversity science and advice through effective utilization of internal resources by steering of the work of various ICES expert groups, and communication with external research communities and stakeholder groups;
  2. position ICES to ensure that it is regarded as an effective and reliable source of biodiversity advice;
  3. ensure development and promotion of the linkage of marine biodiversity science and advice.

SIBAS goals will be achieved through close cooperation with the ICES Member States, regional marine management bodies, international organisations/initiatives and external international research networks.
