MARINE SPATIAL PLANNING

 

Key Services that MER offers include:

  • Consult stakeholders on appropriate ecosystem-based management
  • Ecological consulting, surveying and reporting

 

MSP is a process for planning and regulating all human uses and aims to protect the marine ecosystems in which these activities take place and safeguard marine biodiversity. It is designed to promote rational use of the sea and to improve decision-making and certainty in a way that ensures environmental sustainability.

 

A growing number of EU member states have already launched maritime spatial planning measures or will soon be doing so.
