Conference - “Challenges and opportunities for maritime spatial planning of the Black Sea in Romania and Bulgaria”

At the European Union level it was highly recognized the importance of the sea and the need to establish a framework for maritime spatial planning.

A crucial step in this respect was made with the adoption of the Directive 2014/89/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 July 2014 establishing a framework for maritime spatial planning.

According to the Directive maritime spatial planning means a process by which the relevant Member State’s authorities analyze and organize human activities in marine areas to achieve ecological, economic and social objectives.

Each Member State shall establish and implement maritime spatial planning taking into account land-sea interactions. The resulting plan or plans shall be developed and produced in accordance with the institutional and governance levels determined by Member States. According to the Directive each Member State shall establish and implement maritime spatial planning as soon as possible, and at the latest by 31 March 2021.

The main benefits of maritime spatial planning are:

  1. Reduce conflicts between sectors and create synergies between different activities.
  2. Encourage investment – by creating predictability, transparency and clearer rules.
  3. Increase cross-border cooperation between EU countries to develop energy grids, shipping lanes, pipelines, submarine cables and other activities, but also to develop coherent networks of protected areas.
  4. Protect the environment – through early identification of impact and opportunities for multiple use of space.

In the context of the finalization of the MARSPLAN - BS project and the future activities for the elaboration of the maritime spatial plan, the partnership is organising the final Conference “Challenges and opportunities for maritime spatial planning of the Black Sea in Romania and Bulgaria”, Bucharest, 11th of January 2018, 1030 – 1730, Hotel Marshal Garden, 50B Dorobanţilor Street, Sector 1, Panoramic Conference Room.

The aim of the final conference is to contribute to the capitalization of results of the project MARSPLAN-BS to support the future national activities for the elaboration of the maritime spatial plan and to the wide dissemination of the maritime spatial planning results in Romania and Bulgaria and the good MSP practices of all relevant actors.
