The purpose of this document is to establish a framework for the analysis of Multi-Use (MU) in the sea basin context, which will provide the project consortium with the practical research tools necessary to examine theoretical understanding and practical experience related to MU. This framework will guide further analyses and also feed into Work Package (WP) 3 - Case Study Analysis. For this specific purpose, this analytical framework (AF) will be considered in the preparation of the Case Study Methodology (D3.1), aiming at maximizing the degree of commonality between the two scales of analysis (Sea Basin scale and local scale).
The analytical framework is intended to guide the process of information and data gathering and stakeholder engagement, providing the needed degree of homogeneity to the analysis of different Sea Basins. The framework should be interpreted as a flexible tool, and it may be modified and adapted through the implementation process, according to the emerging needs. In the event of changes or additions to the framework described herein being encountered, a technical note will be prepared by the WP2 leader, describing the amendments to the methodology. After WP2 completion, a revised version of this framework will be prepared, incorporating all changes.
