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 Federation, to jointly develop commonly agreed spatial planning perspectives for MCH.
Questions this practice may help answer:
- How to include Maritime Cultural Haritage aspects in Maritime Spatial Planning?
The work was conducted within the scope of WP3 and focused on methods and tools for including the Maritime Cultural Heritage aspects in Maritime Spatial Planning.
Aspects / Objectives:
The "Maritime Cultural Heritage impact assessment strategy for MSP" aims to serve as a general guidance document for planners, decision makers and stakeholders.
The report starts with a review of a legal background (at the International, European and Regional level), as well as data, knowledge and common language. It then provides an overview of the MCH risk management process for MSP and MCH risk management tools for MSP.
Main Outputs / Results:
- Improved MCH risk management competitiveness and effectiveness of activities existing within the national and trans-boundary marine jurisdiction;
- Achievement of the MSP-related MCH protection and sustainable use, as well as international and national level policy objectives.
The “MCH impact assessment strategy for MSP” can be taken into consideration by planners, decision makers and stakeholders in other countries and sea basins.
