Transboundary Waters Assessment Programme (TWAP) Vol. 4: Large Marine Ecosystems: Status and trends - Summary for Policy Makers

United Nations Environment Programme ; Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (2016)

This LMEs assessment is the first indicator-based global, comparative, baseline assessment of the 66 LMEs. To facilitate the comparative assessment, LMEs were grouped into five colour-coded categories of relative risk, from lowest to highest. Results are at the scale of each entire LME and do not reflect management approaches of any one country within an LME. A sub-set of indicators was also assessed for the Western Pacific Warm Pool.
