Call for papers Paddle Final International Conference


The final conference of the H2020-MSCA-RISE Project "Planning in a Liquid World, Tropical Issues" will take place from 4-6 April 2023 at the Pôle Numérique Brest Iroise, Institut Universitaire Européen de la Mer, in Plouzané, France.

The project aims to develop a more inclusive Community across the tropical Atlantic combining research activities on marine spatial planning from Brazil, West Africa and Europe, and to explore alternative options to ensure that new models of production and ocean governance explicitly include local communities instead of shifting wealth away from them.

The final international conference "MSP IN THE TROPICS" , will focus on the following themes:

  • Artisanal fisheries
  • Decision support tools and geomatics
  • Land/sea links
  • Knowledge issues
  • Critical approach to MSP
  • Cultural, social, religious dimension
  • New modes of public participation
  • Noise at sea
  • Climate change and MSP 
  • Restoration of coastal marine ecosystems and ecosystem design

Please submit your information onto the management platform for the event before 14 November.
