After being presented to the 2nd Baltic MSP Forum, the initial outcomes of Baltic Sea Region MSP Data Expert Sub-group are now available for wider public
Upon the given tasks MSP Data Expert Sub-group has identified main transboundary/cross-border MSP themes and developed a relevant list on available data sets necessary for development of coherent maritime spatial plans across the Baltic Sea region.
The list on available data sets are structured into 11 themes accordingly to the Directive (2014/89/EU) establishing a framework for maritime spatial planning (MSP Directive). Although for national maritime spatial planning purposes there is a need for wide range of data sets on different scales, MSP Data group agreed on most important data sets which are relevant from transboundary cooperation and consultation perspective. It is noted that other existing maritime spatial plans (both within the country and neighbouring countries) also serve as input information for MSP.
