National maritime spatial plans in the North Sea and North-East Atlantic regions have not been successful in considering the ocean's capacity to accommodate the growing pressures of human activities at sea.

The studies, whose key results will be presented at this event, land just ahead of the 3rd International Conference on Marine/Maritime Spatial Planning and depict a worrying picture of the state of MSP in the EU.
