Voices for Marine Spatial Planning

We asked four people, each involved with a variety of marine issues, about what they think marine spatial planning will mean for them in their work.

Åsa Andersson, Head of Aquatic Environments for WWF

"For me marine spatial planning means taking a holistic approach toward ensuring long-term sustainable usage of marine resources.... [It also] helps to reduce conflicts between different activities."

Jan Sundberg, Head of Environmental and Permit Issues for Seabased Industry

"I see great advantages in marine spatial planning for environmental issues, utilisation of the sea, and even permit issues which today are a cumbersome and time-consuming process for companies."

Lars Fladvad, Head of Development for Värmdö Municipality

"Marine spatial planning is a natural extension of our physical planning here in Värmdö."

Sten Jerdenius, Ministry of the Environment

"It's important to have comprehensive, long-term marine spatial planning that takes a balanced approach between managing the different interests."
