As part of the MSPglobal pilot project in the West Mediterranean, a national training course on Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) and Sustainable Blue Economy (“Curso de capacitación sobre la Ordenación del Espacio Marino y la Economía Azul Sostenible”) is organized in Madrid (Spain), one of the member states of the WestMED Initiative.
It will cover:
- Presentation of the current situation of the national marine and coastal zones;
