Best practice in maritime spatial planning

A study commissioned by the Greens/EFA

With this study, we set out to demystify the process behind planning, developing and conservation for our seas and oceans. In the coming years, we will be increasingly familiar with the process of Maritime Spatial Planning as we look to simultaneously harness the energy of the winds and the seas and protect our marine environment from overexploitation, whilst continuing to provide healthy food and sustainable livelihoods to coastal communities and beyond.

The EU needs to effectively address the root causes of the crisis in the Mediterranean, not just its symptoms.
