This chapter applies commonly used approaches in the evaluation of policies and spatial planning on land to the MSP.
Maritime Spatial Planning
The report is developed within a framework of the BalticRim project that brings together actors in charge of maritime cultural heritage (MCH) and Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) from seven countries around the Baltic Sea, including the Russian Fed
The report collects and describes relevant information related to the main aspects that have to be considered in the MSP context of the Western Mediterranean sea-basin.
The study is an example of how MSP and ecosystem based principles and actual planning process has influenced the search and assessment of new disposal sites at the nearshore of Lithuania.
DISPLACE allows contributing to marine spatial planning for evaluating the effects on stocks and fisheries and ultimately incorporating other utilization of the sea such as energy production, transport, recreational use, etc.
This practice illustrates how to prepare the SEA report for maritime spatial plans in line with the spirit of the SEA Directive when the planned area contains Natura 2000 sites.
