Assessing Progress in Marine Spatial Planning

Published at: 4 April 2013

The European Union is currently working towards a Directive on maritime spatial planning and integrated coastal management. Several European countries and other jurisdictions around the world are developing or implementing systems of marine spatial planning (MSP).

Research efforts are also ongoing, to explore different approaches to MSP and to evaluate current practice. A seminar is being organised that will provide an opportunity for participants to present and discuss academic perspectives and the findings of current research on the development of MSP.

The seminar is being organised by the Marine Spatial Planning Research Network and will take place at the University of Liverpool, United Kingdom on 29th - 30th May, 2013.
