Assisting cooperation for the implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive on underwater noise
For better management of D11
Identify relevant indicators for risk of impact assessment of shipping noise
Consolidation of indicators on the state, pressure and impacts of underwater noise
Promote harmonisation of regional work on threshold values
Providing management tools for GES assessment
Demonstrate the effectiveness of coordinated mitigation measures to reduce shipping noise
Promote (sub)regional cooperation in the Mediterranean Sea and Black Sea
QUIETSEAS is being developed by an expert team for science-based policy advice
The consortium is made up of 10 entities, including relevant actors of the Common Implementation Strategy, Competent Authorities, Intergovernmental entities, Research Centres and Universities.
Facilitating underwater noise management
QUIETSEAS is a project funded by the DG Environment of the European Commission within the call “DG ENV/MSFD 2020” Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). This call funds the next phase of MSFD implementation. The project has a duration of 24 months starting on February 2021. is built on the work developed by the QUIETMED (2017-2019) and QUIETMED2 (2019-2021) projects.
A new tool will be released as output of Activity 7.
