SIMAtlantic

This handbook has been developed within the context of the SIMAtlantic project that aims to support the establishment and implementation of Maritime Spatial Plans in line with MSP Directive requirements.

UNESCO-IOC Marine Spatial Planning Programme

The Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO developed a ten-step guide defining the scope and the nature of marine spatial planning. MSP can be a key component to an ecosystem-based management of marine areas and marine resources.
