If you are interested to read a bit more academic texts on marine planning the recent MSP special issue of the Journal of Coastal Conservation -planning and management published by Springer (Vol 15 number 2 June 2011) includes eight new peer-review papers. The issue includes the article “Transboundary maritime spatial planning: a Baltic Sea perspective” by the PLAN BOTHNIA Project Manager Hermanni Backer, taking up some of the transboundary aspects of MSP. The Baltic Sea HELCOM/VASAB MSP working group and principles, adopted in 2010, as well as the PLAN BOTHNIA project are used as examples of planning activities across national borders. The JCC special issue has been guest edited by Vittorio Barale and Nicole Schaefer.
