Handbook on Maritime Spatial Planning

10.06.2008

The final output of the PlanCoast project, i.e. the Handbook on Integrated Maritime Spatial Planning, has just been published and is currently being disseminated. The handbook summarises the experience of the PlanCoast project (INTERREG IIIB CADSES) gained through various activities, such as conferences, workshops, trainings and, most of all, the 20 pilot projects covering areas of the Adriatic, Baltic and the Black Seas.

The first section of this document addresses decision-makers at all levels explaining the needs for and benefits of Integrated Maritime Spatial Planning (IMSP). The intention was to provide the project partners and relevant stakeholders with good arguments to push the introduction of IMSP higher on the political agenda. The second part is intended as a practical guide for planners and coastal managers. It takes the reader through the different stages of the IMSP process, and highlights the elements necessary for success. The overview of current European marine policy developments and of other key stakeholders concludes the publication. The Handbook is available on-line for download, and can be ordered via the project website.
