The Marine Conservation Sub-Committee (MCSC) aims to ensure that decisions taken by policy-makers and resource managers on the management of marine resources are based on sound and scientific knowledge. The MCSC brings together marine experts from SSC, the World Commission on Protected Areas, the IUCN Global Marine Programme and other key partners such as TRAFFIC and the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO). It acts as a crucial focal point for marine issues, providing an advisory role to the SSC Steering Committee and for initiatives such as the Global Marine Species Asessment and taking on specific marine issues not covered by other components of IUCN.
