C1.3. Development of Cooperation on Maritime Spatial Planning
Lead partner: UCC
This case study seeks to understand transboundary issues and opportunities from a Celtic Seas perspective and concentrates on shipping and offshore renewable energy. It aims to understand issues and opportunities within the shipping & navigational safety and offshore renewable energy sectors within the MSP process.
The analysis identifies issues within the individual sectors, as well as identifying issues when they come together in the same marine space and the opportunities for both sectors stemming from the implementation of MSP based on interviews with agencies from both sectors.
Issue-specific analysis and recommendations from the case study are aimed at supporting marine planners in the implementation of MSP and the effective, coherent planning of both sectors across the Celtic Seas.
