The project aims at developing a methodology for MSP (Maritime Spatial Planning) and then using this methodology for pilot implementation in selected areas in Cyprus and Greece for drafting maritime spatial plans, as well as for preparing both countries for the imminent implementation of the EU Directive on MSP. The resolution of spatial conflicts between different uses of the sea, better coordination between stakeholders, strengthening cross-border cooperation, and creating conditions for achieving sustainable development in line with the strategy "Europe 2020", are also among the objectives of the project.
