About EBM Tools

Ecosystem-Based Management (EBM) tools are methods and software that help practitioners incorporate scientific and socioeconomic information into decision making. EBM tools can help:

  • Develop models of ecosystems
  • Generate scenarios illustrating the consequences of different management decisions on natural resources and the economy
  • Facilitate stakeholder involvement in planning processes.

The diagram below (Halpin et al., In press) shows the range of EBM tools.
