What is the UK National Ecosystem Assessment?

The UK National Ecosystem Assessment (UK NEA) was the first analysis of the UK’s natural environment in terms of the benefits it provides to society and continuing economic prosperity. Part of the Living With Environmental Change (LWEC) initiative, the UK NEA commenced in mid-2009 and reported in June 2011. It was an inclusive process involving many government, academic, NGO and private sector institutions.

The NEAFO community would like to extend its deepest sympathy to the family and close colleagues at SAMS of Laurence Mee, following his sudden death on 13th of August 2014. Laurence was a significant contributor to the NEAFO and he will be greatly missed by all of us.

Laurence was an excellent marine scientist but also a very active contributor to the coastal and marine policy process. His boundless energy and enthusiasm was applied across a whole range of issues with policy relevance being the key feature. He was also a very effective communicator and used this skill to good purpose around the globe in numerous academic and governance circles. On a personal level his warm hearted nature touched everyone he came into contact with. Laurence’s passing will leave a big gap in the marine science and policy field and amongst his many academic colleagues who were also his friends. His memory will live long with all of us who were privileged to know and work with him of the years.

Kerry Turner, Bob Watson and Steve Albon,  NEAFO Co-chairs, on behalf of the whole NEAFO network.
