Issue: Societal responses to direct pressures of human activities on coasts and oceans - Responses to shipping pressures
This is an issue under the Coasts and oceans theme of the Data Reporting System.
In order to know whether societal responses to environmental problems are proving effective, it is important to measure both reductions in impacts which follow human actions aimed at reducing pressures and, where there has been insufficient time for such actions to translate into environmental improvements, to measure the extent of implementation of responses which are intended to have these effects.
- CO-75 Government response measures (shipping)
National responses take a long time to translate into changes of condition. Although they can translate into changes in both the occurrence and intensity of the pressures in a much shorter time, monitoring prior to their introduction might not have been adequate for any change to show in the data. As response indicators, the fact of introduction of a national plan and strategy provides a date from which change in the pressure and the condition can be monitored.
