This NWA call (Dutch Research Agenda) invites consortia consisting of researchers and stakeholders to jointly develop project proposals addressing the cumulative effects climate change, rapid change in biodiversity, pollution and local human activities on the Wadden Sea ecosystem. This is urgently needed to safeguard the special value of this unique nature reserve.

Scientific project proposals should provide stakeholders with the required research findings and indicate how these findings can be translated into practice. Proposals may address monitoring concepts, management strategies and the decision-making process, or may provide answers to existing knowledge gaps that need to be addressed quickly. All research projects and actions should contribute to maintaining and improving the 'Outstanding Universal Value' of the Wadden Sea as a natural World Heritage Site.
