Workshop Shipping

Workshop ‘Shipping – planning issues, criteria, tools’

Connecting Seas conference, 14 February 2019

Freedom of navigation is one of the most important principles for shipping. Nevertheless, physical obstacles in the sea have highly increased in numbers over the last years. One reason is the rapid development of offshore windfarms.

In this workshop we will present our results, findings and recommendations regarding the shipping sector, for example the identification of planning mismatches, national approaches for the planning of shipping corridors and good practice planning approach for transnational coherent planning of ship corridors.

We will present to you similarities and differences in both sea basins as well as one of the biggest challenges for shipping in MSP: obtaining and using data.

In smaller groups we want to tap into your expertise, discuss our results and findings, and develop recommendations to be implemented in the national MSP processes.

So come onboard (not the pirates, of course) and join us on our shipping workshop!
