European Union Requests Public Input on Maritime Spatial Planning
The European Union (EU) is gathering stakeholder feedback about the status and future of maritime spatial planning (MSP) and integrated coastal zone management (ICZM) and assessing where further EU action would be most useful. The information gathered will be incorporated into an impact assessment and may be used to prepare draft proposals on MSP or ICZM. Anyone with an interest in these issues, including government officials, nongovernmental organizations, researchers, and coastal or maritime companies, is invited to complete an anonymous online questionnaire before the May 20, 2011, deadline. The questionnaire can be accessed at http://ec.europa.eu/yourvoice/ipm/forms/dispatch?form=MAREENV&lang=en.
