European Parliament event on Maritime Spatial Planning

The European Parliament voted on the 10th of December its negotiating mandate for the Maritime Spatial Planning and Integrated Coastal Management (MSP-ICM) Directive. A lunchtime roundtable brought together actors from the European Parliament, the European Commission, wind energy representatives and stakeholders working at national level, to discuss how a holistic approach to planning of activities within the marine environment can be achieved, such as through systematically tracking and monitoring of seabirds to inform the designation of MPAs in Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal and the UK as attempted in the FAME project.
