Are you curious about what other states have learned from their marine spatial plan?
Have you ever wondered about gaps and opportunities in the planning processes?

Well, you’re in luck!

Jennifer McCann from Rhode Island Sea Grant led an initiative supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation and the Coastal Resources Center to transfer knowledge between marine planners. An assessment which identifies opportunities to strengthen the MSP global network and recognizes coordination opportunities that can increase efficiency and opportunities was just released.

The assessment focuses on identifying:

  • information, tools, and techniques that practitioners need;
  • effective mechanisms for delivering those materials;
  • organizations which could assist in building capacity;
  • constituencies who need the materials for implementation.
  • Washington state is highlighted as a strong example of effectively applying the MSP approach in the U.S. state waters.
