MARSPLAN-BS II OUTPUTS ON INTEGRATING LAND-SEA INTERACTIONS IN MSP ARE AVAILABLE IN THREE REPORTS

MARSPLAN BS II LSI Report

 

The Center for Coastal and Marine Studies (CCMS) has led the development and elaboration of the Land-Sea Interactions (LSI) reports and case study under the MARSPLAN-BS II project (WP2, Activity 2.3 Integration of LSI in MSP for the cross-border region).

The Report on Methodology for analysis and integration of Land-Sea Interactions in the cross-border MSP provides relevant methodology for analysis and integration of LSI in the MSP, transferable for application to the national MSP plans of Bulgaria and Romania.

The Report on Implementation of LSI-MSP methodology in Shabla Case Study presents the results of testing the proposed LSI methodology in Bulgaria (Shabla Municipality): LSI stocktaking, in-depth analysis of LSI and key messages for LSI integration in MSP.

The Report on Best practices and recommendations for further work on integrating Land-Sea Interactions into cross-border MSP provides synopsis of the existing and emerging approaches and mechanisms for addressing the LSI and integrating them in the MSP (EU project-based studies and general frameworks), identified challenges and enablers on integrating LSI in MSP and concludes with key recommendations to overcome these challenges.

MARSPLAN-BS II proposed a possible step-wise approach for addressing the complex interactions at the boundary of land and sea (in a two way perspective looking from the land to the sea and looking from the sea to the land), and to integrating them in the MSP. Such approach will allow for recommendations for good management of LSI and to be used in the next rounds of implementation and monitoring of the MSP process in Bulgaria and Romania. This approach includes:

▪ A common framework for considering LSI in the context of coastal and maritime spatial planning
▪ A proposed common working definition for LSI
▪ A methodology for analysis of LSI and integration in MSP (these methodological guidelines may be used as further repetition models in Bulgaria and Romania)
▪ Testing the methodology in the cross-border area of Bulgaria and Romania, with particular focus on coastal erosion
▪ Identifying main challenges and enablers for practical implementation of LSI on integration of LSI in MSP
▪ Recommendations for further work on integrating LSI into national and cross-border MSP
