The National Ocean Policy identifies EBM as a foundational principle of ocean and coastal resource management. To advance the goals put forward by the National Ocean Policy, an interagency team has been working to increase the understanding and use of EBM by federal agencies. The interagency team has recently used a questionnaire tool to identify and analyze how EBM is used currently in the Federal Government. More than 60 federal programs and projects from 13 agencies responded to the questionnaire. While the response is far from comprehensive, it provides valuable insights into who is using EBM and the similarities, differences, and lessons to be learned from these programs.
