Short Science Summary: Marine Spatial Planning

 

Marine spatial planning (MSP) seeks to plan and manage sea uses and engage users in a way that helps achieve sustainable development of marine areas. The rationale for MSP is to provide a stable and transparent planning system for maritime activities and users, within agreed-upon environmental limits, to ensure that marine ecosystems and their biodiversity remain healthy. This summary represents a general overview of the research, produced by Annex IV under Ocean Energy Systems. The table below contains the literature relevant to MSP and marine renewable energy and will continue to be updated as new literature is added to Tethys.
