Marine spatial planning is developing rapidly in many regions and countries in response to increases in ocean uses and user conflicts, growing environmental degradation and loss of ecosystem services, and awareness of the shortcomings of single-sector management. Marine spatial planning attempts to reduce spatial use conflicts and environmental stressors by comprehensively planning for multiple uses and objectives in an ecosystem-and place-based manner (Beck et al. 2009, CEQ 2010). In July 2010…

Recent Developments at the Federal Level in Ocean Policymaking in the United States
U.S. ocean policy is managed by 24 agencies, applying approximately 147 separate laws, many of which have been amended over time. This presents a complex, cumbersome, sometimes redundant and

The importance of marine spatial planning in advancing ecosystem-based sea use management
Guiding ecological principles for marine spatial planning
The proposed four main ecological principles to guide MSP—maintaining or restoring: native species diversity, habitat diversity and heterogeneity, key species, and connectivity—and two additional guidelines, the need to account for context and uncertainty, must be explicitly taken into account in the planning process.
Linking top‐down and bottom‐up processes through the new U.S. National Ocean Policy
Two of the priority objectives in the new U.S. National Ocean Policy are “ecosystem‐based management” (EBM) and “coastal and marine spatial planning” (CMSP). Drawing from several studies
Proposed U.S. Policy for Ocean, Coast, and Great Lakes Stewardship
Regional planning bodies would implement coordinated, ecosystem-based approaches to coastal and marine spatial planning to ensure wise stewardship of coasts, oceans, and Great Lakes.
Comprehensive Planning, Dominant-Use Zones, and User Rights: A New Era in Ocean Governance
Ocean-zoning arguments often center on the biology of ocean species, the geography of fishing-use patterns, and the need for preventing use conflicts. Here we expand this discussion to the social and
Land Changes and Conflicts Coordination in Coastal Urbanization: A Case Study of the Shandong Peninsula in China
The coastal zone is an interaction region between land and ocean and an interface of geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere, as well as greatly affected by human activities. Driven by
