The recommendations are developed within the context of the Pan Baltic Scope project, which aims to achieve coherent national maritime spatial planning in the Baltic Sea region, and to build lasting macro-region mechanisms for cross border MSP cooperation. The recommendations should help the countries in developing the frameworks for economic and social analyses in MSP.
QUESTIONS THIS PRACTICE MAY HELP ANSWER:
- How is a framework for economic and social analyses in maritime spatial planning developed?
The report is developed in the context of the Pan Baltic Scope project and presents its results.
ASPECTS / OBJECTIVES:
The aim of the recommendations is to help stakeholders to create a framework for economic and social analyses in MSP.
The development of the recommendations included a literature review and the results of a survey, submitted to the national authorities in the Baltic Sea countries, on the assessment of economic and social impacts and ecosystem services in national MSP.
The work represents part of the Activity 1.2.5 on Economic and Social Analyses in the Pan Baltic Scope project. The recommendations represent the results of collaboration (Work Package 1.2) on the Ecosystem-Based Approach in the Pan Baltic Scope project and are based on the previous regional economic and social analyses, mainly HELCOM HOLAS II.
MAIN OUTPUTS / RESULTS:
The recommendations are presented as a list of guidelines on how to develop the economic and social analyses in MSP.
Although the recommendations are developed for the Baltic Sea, the information and methodology could be applied to other regions.
