D1.2 Report on societal and ethical issues of exploitationmore info

NATURE: REPORT

DISSEMINATION: PUBLIC

SCHEDULED: JUN/2014

ACHIEVED: OCT/2014

The ethical dimensions of sustainable development of a multi-use platform should be made under the principles and criteria of the sustainable use of natural renewable resources and on their contribution to human and ecosystem well-being. Even though there is no explicit framework for dealing with ethical concerns, an approximation is made in this document based on FAO reports, initiatives and research articles found on the subject. It is recommended that an Ethical and Social Impact Assessment Plan should be done prior to the placeman of the platform in collaboration with the local community; it is strongly recommended the involvement of the coastal community and stakeholders from the early stages. For a coastal community to access jobs related directly or indirectly to the placement of an offshore aquaculture activity or an offshore energy activity, some training has to be foreseen among the coastal community prior or in parallel to the start of the exploitation. Furthermore, any activity that could pose a threat or that could have a negative impact on human health as well as any negative impact to the environment should be considered and addressed.
