WOC advances industry understanding and engagement on marine spatial planning by delivering information, analysis and dialogue to improve interaction between the Ocean Business Community and Marine Planning Efforts.
As Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) efforts continue to grow around the world, the World Ocean Council (WOC) is working to ensure that both MSP proponents and the ocean business community understand and address the need, value and opportunity for industry to be informed of, and engaged in, MSP.
Recent and upcoming WOC MSP program reports address:
- Marine Planning Management Practice and six key business interests regarding MSP, click here.
- Industry Perspectives on Marine Planning (coming soon)
- Multi-Sector Challenges and Opportunities for MSP in the North Sea (coming soon)
- Industry Comments on the US National Ocean Policy
As the international, multi-industry leadership alliance on Corporate Ocean Responsibility, the WOC is facilitating industry participation in marine-related programs and projects of the EU and other government and inter-governmental bodies. For example, the WOC is uniquely able to ensure industry engagement as a partner in Horizon 2020 consortia developing marine planning and Blue Growth projects.
