Maritime Spatial Planning (July 2010)
Maritime spatial planning is about planning of sea space and can help us manage our seas and oceans sustainably. In the process, it can help us create new jobs and economic opportunities, meet our targets for reducing our carbon footprint and keep our seas healthy for generations to come. It seeks to balance sectoral interests and use space more efficiently, thereby contributing to the long-term sustainable use of marine resources. Some EU Member States have considerable experience in planning and managing the use of maritime space. The European Commission is building on this experience and working with Member States and stakeholders towards the implementation of a coherent set of principles for maritime spatial planning across the EU.
