Abstract

Maritime spatial planning (MSP) is a new and innovative tool to introduce spatial planning in maritime spaces, zoning and balancing environmental, social and economic objectives for the sea. The international dimension inherent in many maritime activities, as well as an ecosystem-based approach, mean that a transboundary perspective to MSP is basically required. MSP operates within the framework of Blue Growth Strategy (2012/494/EU) suggesting that the future economic development of European countries should maximize the sustainable use of marine environments and their services. Accordingly the Directive on Maritime Spaces Planning (2014/89/EU) all member states have to update their planning systems including maritime spaces: this requires a fundamental upgrade in planners’ competences and opens a debate within the planning associations. The paper will present the state of implementation of Maritime Planning in European countries, focusing on the on-going experimentation promoted by DG Mare within the framework of ADRIPLAN project , finalized to propose and recommend a planning test on Adriatic Ionian Region.
