The eMSP NBSR project (Emerging Ecosystem-based Maritime Spatial Planning Topics in the North and Baltic Sea Regions) aimed to enable maritime spatial planners, managing authorities and policymakers from the North and Baltic Sea Regions to reflect on current MSP practices, to learn effectively from each other, and to collectively identify problems and solutions.

Project provided a platform for marine spatial planners and other experts to collaboratively advance MSP practice. It addressed urgent and emerging MSP topics through a community of practice-based approach that enabled joint learning across professions and across the North Sea and Baltic Sea areas.

Project work took into account the European Green Deal, climate change and how climate-neutrality targets can be addressed in MSP. The planners and experts were supported by a method mentoring team and a scientific advisory board.
