Baltic SCOPE is a two-year, EU-funded project that focuses on achieving coherence between the marine spatial plans for the Baltic Sea. Our agency is the project’s lead partner.
Baltic SCOPE involves mainly governmental agencies.
Marine spatial planning can determine how society and businesses are to utilize and care for the Baltic Sea.
Baltic SCOPE is focusing on two case studies in geographic areas that already have planning processes underway.
Take a look at a map of the two Baltic SCOPE project areas.
We will organize a series of meetings with planners and relevant institutional actors. With them we will work in a step-by-step approach on cross-border issues such as shipping, energy, fisheries, and nature conservation.
This method will equip planners from participating countries with the ability to include transnational considerations when developing national maritime spatial plans.
As a result, we can all develop national marine spatial plans based upon in-depth information from neighboring countries and with common solutions formed in joint discussions. This collaborative planning will lead to greater coherence between our countries’ marine spatial plans.
