REGINA MSP aims at improving the participation of regional and local authorities and stakeholders in maritime spatial planning. This governance level provides an adequate scale for detailed planning of marine areas and for integrating European and national policy requirements with local specificities and needs. The project combines a general analysis at the European level aiming at creating a compendium of regional experiences on MSP and identifying persisting gaps with an in-depth MSP-focused analysis at the level of sub-national case studies in five Atlantic and Mediterranean EU countries (Ireland, France, Spain, Italy and Greece). REGINA MSP methodology includes analysis of existing policy and planning documents, literature review, collection and assessment of spatial data, interviews with actors and engagement of regional and local stakeholders. CNR-ISMAR is involved in all project activities, working in particular on the definition of a common methodological approach to case studies and on the implementation of the Italian case in Sardinia region. Besides reports, the project will deliver policy-oriented papers and briefs targeting different users (the EU, countries and regions).
