The Marine Planning website helps marine and coastal decision-makers navigate real-world challenges and reach effective solutions.
Management, planning, and conservation in marine and coastal environments are changing rapidly to address increasingly complex challenges. New approaches are emerging based on practical experience and scientific findings. Balancing multiple objectives across sectors such as energy, fisheries, hazard mitigation, transportation, tourism, and conservation is among the most important challenges presently facing marine planners and managers. To address this challenge, many practitioners are grappling with implementation of ecosystem-based management (EBM) and marine spatial planning (MSP).
