The report is developed within a framework of the BalticRim project that brings together actors in charge of the Maritime Cultural Heritage (MCH) and Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) from seven countries surrounding the Baltic Sea, including the Russian Federation, to jointly develop commonly agreed spatial planning perspectives for MCH.
Questions this practice may help answer:
- How to facilitate co-operation between the planners and maritime cultural heritage officials in MSP process?
The work was conducted within the scope of the Work Package 2 and focused on the Maritime Cultural Heritage knowledge base and its smart and professional integration to MSP.
Aspects / Objectives:
The focus of this report is to explore the possibilities for protection of MCH by creating a common language and discussion platform between the maritime spatial planners and officers responsible for protection of maritime cultural heritage in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) countries.
The atlas is prepared in line with the needs of the maritime spatial planners making use of the planning vocabulary, dwelling on MSP documents and putting visual language to the forefront.
Main Outputs / Results:
The atlas summarises the work conducted within the scope of the WP 2 (GoA 2.1, 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4), creating a bridge between the historical knowledge and spatial planning. It aims to show the pan-Baltic potential of MCH, highlight the most valuable areas, analyse the main threads and propose zoning solutions.
The challenges and planning principles identified in this report can be taken into consideration when integrating the MCH in MSP in other sea basins.
