Competition for space among different human activities in the marine area and greater scientific understanding of the effects of such activities on marine ecosystem health are forcing marine managers to develop new solutions for the sustainable management of our seas.
Marine spatial planning (marine planning) as part of an overall system of marine management is one of the big new ideas that is being implemented in many nations’ seas around the world.
This website is dedicated to highlighting research into marine planning practice and learning from relevant experiences, structured around a number of key themes.
