Brussels, Belgium

The first International Forum for Maritime/Marine Spatial Planning brought to Brussels, Belgium, over 130 participants from 38 different nationalities, working in 27 countries, although many are based in a country and contribute to the development of MSP in other regions. The forum had good gender balance, with 55% women. Young MSP planners from the Erasmus Mundus Master Course on MSP were invited to work as rapporteurs of the workshops.

Activities included:

> Two plenaries on “EU cross-border perspectives” and “International cross-border perspectives”

> Two technical workshops on “Cross-sector and transboundary integration in MSP” and “Stakeholder involvement”
