Regional Forum for Accelerating Marine Spatial Planning in the Western Pacific
16 Dec 2022 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm UTC+7
Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) is a process that proposes a more integrative, multisectoral approach to managing marine spaces and resources. It can improve decision-making and provide a framework for balancing sectoral interests, to achieve the sustainable use of marine resources.
The IOC/UNESCO and the European Commission are working together to accelerate MSP processes tthrough a joint action called MSProadmap. IOC’s work on promoting ecosystem-based management through MSP is also a major contribution to the UN Decade of Ocean Sciences for Sustainable Development (2021-2030).
Objectives: To bring together various MSP stakeholders in the region, including national authorities, research/academia, business/private sectors, NGOs, ECOPs and foundations, to
- Share the outcomes of the 5th International MSPforum and the 3rd International Conference on Marine/Maritime Spatial Planning;
- Brief on national and regional relevant achievements, tools, and innovation demonstration;
- Express views, and seek a better mutual understanding of marine spatial planning processes undertaken within the specific regional contexts;
- Seek new opportunities for exchange and cooperation, and explore the possibility of developing a roadmap to accelerate marine spatial planning in the region.
