The Maritime Institute in Gdańsk invites to the final conference:
Advancing Maritime Spatial Planning: Results from the BaltSeaPlan project and beyond
Date: 12th January 2012

Location: Berlin,
Conference Organiser: German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency – BSH (Lead Partner BaltSeaPlan)
Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) has become a widely acknowledged and necessary tool for co-ordinating spatial use and balancing of interests in the sea. In view of increasing needs to protect the marine environment and at the same time expanding activities such as offshore wind energy parks and growing shipping traffic such systematic, integrative and forward-looking planning is required in order to safeguard the sustainable development of the oceans.

Among the numerous developments on MSP at European level as well as its regions, states and maritime areas, the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) can certainly claim to be the pioneer among European sea regions in the field of MSP. But also here MSP is far from being established practice and many more steps need to be undertaken.

The conference aims to show and trigger discussions on latest MSP developments at policy as well as implementation level within the European Commission and the Baltic Sea Region. It is open to maritime spatial planning experts and decision makers around all European countries.
