Scottish Marine Protected Areas (MPA): monitoring strategy

The Scottish Marine Protected Area (MPA) monitoring strategy outlines an approach to MPA-related survey and monitoring to ensure that sufficient information is collected to underpin assessment and reporting obligations.

12. Review the effectiveness of the strategy in meeting its objectives

The Strategy, including its objectives and delivery, will be reviewed on a regular basis to assess its effectiveness. This will be done by assessing progress against the stated purpose of the Strategy in Section 2.2.

Furthermore, the Annexes to this Strategy will be updated annually to ensure the monitoring work plans reflect changing resource availability and any changes in prioritisation.
