AMP Toolbox

Policy Cycle

The policy cycle adopted in the adaptive marine policy (AMP) toolbox is based on the policy-making process suggested by the MSFD. It is transformed into an adaptive and flexible policy-making cycle by incorporating principles and methodologies used in other policy fields. Step-wise, cyclical policy-making models are widely propagated and used in a variety of different policy fields. Each step of the cycle has a small number (between 2 and 5) of key activities associated with it, following the links to these activities provides the user advice, information, tools and resources on how to undertake the given activity.
