As part of the MSPglobal pilot project in the Southeast Pacific, a national training course on Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) and Sustainable Blue Economy (“Curso de capacitación sobre la Planificación Espacial Marina en el ámbito de la Economía Azul Sostenible”) is organized in Cartagena de Indias (Colombia), one of the member states of the CPPS Plan of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment and Coastal Areas.
It will cover:
- Increased collective capacity to respond to change and challenges in coastal and marine environments and find practical and sustainable solutions to marine resource use through MSP and Sustainable Blue Economy;
- Data and information in MSP processes;
- Stakeholder engagement in MSP processes, from beginning to end.
In the context of MSPglobal and with the support of the Government of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the MSP Challenge game will be used to simulate a planning process, during which participants will be asked to define their country’s vision, objectives, indicators, actions, stakeholders and risks for short and long-term.
