Recommendations from 2nd International Conference on Marine/Maritime Spatial Planning

In March, UNESCO and the European Commission hosted an international conference on marine spatial planning, a process that seeks to regulate human activities in the waters bordering coastal areas so as to preserve marine ecosystems, avoid conflicts between sectors of commercial and industrial activity, and promote international cooperation. The conference concluded with the adoption of a joint roadmap to accelerate Maritime/Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) processes worldwide, which identifies priority areas for EU action.
