Table of Contents

    Planning and designing maritime spaces involves negotiating and developing a maritime area in a sustainable way. Human activities should take place in a balanced approach taking into account the marine environment. The relationship with coastal zone management is also important. The workshop will focus on planning and design of the maritime spaces, the coordination and integration of the government bodies and sectors involved, including a link to Integrated Costal Zones Management. Two questions:  What are lessons learned from a users perspective? and, what are lessons learned from a governmental perspective?
