The conference “Planning the Northern European Atlantic Ocean”, organised by the SIMNORAT project, held in Brest (France), on 29/30 January 2019. The CPMR Atlantic Arc Commission is involved in the SIMNORAT project as a partner. This Final Conference enables the partners to present their results and conclusions on the different activities. Coordinated by Shom, SIMNORAT involves public authorities in charge of MSP, in the Northern Atlantic Member States. The action focuses on two key objectives, to support the implementation of the Directive on Maritime Spatial Planning in Member States’ marine waters and to launch and carry out concrete, cross-border MSP cooperation between Member States in the Atlantic region, involving Member States and the relevant authorities responsible for MSP in the area and the CPMR for the level of the Regions.
The “Planning the Northern European Atlantic Ocean” conference is a unique opportunity for all actors involved in MSP planning or willing to learn more on the implementation of MSP Directives, to discuss its challenges, to meet experts and stakeholders, and exchange knowledge and experiences from the Atlantic and other sea basins areas.
