MESMA Central Exchange is a web-based application for the monitoring and evaluation of spatially managed marine areas (SMAs). It allows you to analyse your SMA in a standardised way, with detailed practical guidance. It uses the generic framework for implementation of ecosystem based marine management that was developed in the MESMA project (2009-2013). By following a step-wise approach you will systematically analyse the current management  

regime in your study area and come up with recommendations. This analysis uses a natural sciences approach (quantitative) and consists of 7 steps. Linked to that is the MESMA governance analysis, using a social science approach (qualitative) which allows you to study governance issues in your study area. Examples of geospatial information and a list of tools will support your analysis. 





The research leading to this application has received funding from the European Community's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-013) under grant agreement n° 226661. For further information on the project go to our project website www.mesma.org.
