Poul Degnbol receives WWF Baltic Sea Leadership Award

Poul Degnbol, the head of the Advisory Programme at ICES – and this month’s author of the opinion article in CFP-reformwatch.eu – has received the WWF Baltic Sea Leadership Award for 2010. He is commended for his active work for sustainable fisheries at the European Commission where he was scientific advisor from 2006 to 2010.

In a press release WWF outlines the motivation for the award: “WWF applauds Poul Degnbol for taking the initiative during his five years within the European Commission to champion the need for, and benefits of, sustainability and integrating the ecosystem based approach to fisheries management within the Common Fisheries Policy which has made a real difference for the Baltic Sea. WWF also recognizes his leadership to advocate for enhanced stakeholder engagement and a more transparent regional decision-making approach to fisheries management based on scientific advice.”
