Paper Abstract • We present a framework for seagrass conservation linking threats, actions, and cost. • The framework allowed selecting the most cost-effective actions to abate threats. • Establishing reefs was the most cost-effective action for 65% seagrass conservation. • Action prioritization based on habitat or threat maps alone was less cost-effective. • Novel methods are needed to reliably measure threats’ impacts and actions’ benefits.
