PREHAB is based on the firm belief that comprehensive and reliable maps of relevant ecological information is an invaluable tool for sustainable management of coastal seas. Such ecological maps include the distribution of individual species, ecosystems and ecosystem good and services. A cost-effective and practical method for producing ecological maps is through empirical modelling.

PREHAB aims to:

  • develop methods for empirical modelling and mapping of benthic habitats
  • develop models for economic valuation of goods & services from marine landscapes
  • integrate ecological and economic predictions to evaluate consequences of future changes using different scenarios of human pressures.
  • communicate important recommendations, tools and findings in a user-friendly way to stake holders and other users.
