FORUMNEWS 11 The MOSES project continues to make pro- gress in quantifying blue growth for the key maritime sectors and developing a common methodology for the Atlantic Area for the quantitative sectoral pressures on the marine environment and the vulnerability of marine and coastal areas. This will contribute to the implementation of toolkits for the sustainabi- lity assessment of the maritime industry in the region. The results will help the regional au- thorities to monitor the Atlantic Action Plan. MOSES partners held their bi-monthly meeting through a Zoom video conference on 8 April. The topics addressed during the meeting inclu- ded the work undergoing in each work package and the constraints due to the current pandemic situation. The need for a project extension was also raised.
