Marine Planning

Long-term planning is a key measure for sustainable management of the sea. Marine spatial planning can strengthen environments and communities, and contribute to poverty reduction and local economic growth.

We collaborate with partners in East Africa and Western Indian Ocean to do this.

Training in marine spatial planning

We offer our partners hands-on experience and expertise in policy, planning and implementation.
