On 5 October 2021, the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of UNESCO (IOC-UNESCO) and the European Commission organised the online final conference of their joint MSPglobal Initiative.
The MSPglobal Initiative was designed to support – from November 2018 to October 2021 – the implementation of the ‘Joint Roadmap to accelerate Maritime/Marine Spatial Planning processes worldwide’ (MSProadmap), which was adopted by IOC-UNESCO and the Directorate-General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries in March 2017.
The event aimed to share the key outcomes of the MSPglobal Initiative while providing an overall approach to Marine/Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) initiatives at national, regional and global scale.
The conference also marked the launch of the ‘MSPglobal International Guide on Marine/Maritime Spatial Planning’, the main deliverable of the project.
The presentations and video recordings of the conference (English, French and Spanish) are available on the MSPglobal website.
