1 European Commission - DG Environment Jon Parker Unit D.3 Cohesion and environmental impact assessment ICZM in Europe

2 2007 renewed focus on integration … EU Maritime Policy « Blue Paper », October 2007 holistic approach to policy making and implementation good governance knowledge based approach integration across land-sea boundary : Coasts are integral part of Maritime Policy Same rationale underlying EU ICZM Recommendation of 2002

3 Good outturn (14/20 Member States; 70% coastline) Progress ; but mature ICZM still rarely observed Reports show varying scope and nature of actions Evaluation of the EU ICZM Recommendation Further support to implementation needed No need for a new or different instrument Approach and Principles of EU ICZM Recommendation remain valid

4 Lack of common understanding of principles of ICZM Knowledge basis – use and sharing of information Continued need for coherent EU policies/legislation Evaluation of the EU ICZM Recommendation More systematic comparative analysis and experience exchange Strengthening the knowledge basis and use of information Maritime Policy offers platform for coherence of policies

5 Priority themes for EU ICZM Adaptation to coastal risks and the impacts of climate change Keys: preventative, multi-risk approach long-term/cross-sector approach integration between prevention and response Cooperation in regional seas context, including marine spatial planning Build on new Marine Strategy Directive and ICZM and existing regional seas structures

6 Outlook for implementation Mainstreaming of ICZM and Maritime Policy Blue Paper and action plan proposed by the Commission (October 2007) Guidance for national maritime policies Collective learning Stakeholder consultation structures and networking Research strategy ! Data and information (EMODNET, Atlas of the seas...)

7 Outlook for implementation Adaptation to coastal risks and the impacts of climate change - White paper on Adaptation to Climate Change (autumn 2008) - Community Disaster Prevention Strategy (end 2008) - Study on adaptation and coastal defence costs - Coastal erosion : CONSCIENCE Cooperation in regional seas context, including marine spatial planning - Marine Strategy Directive, EU ICZM Recommendation - Roadmap and preparatory study, exchange of best-practice - Mediterranean: Protocol ICZM - Cohesion policy: trans-national cooperation programmes; Territorial Cohesion

8 Integrated Coastal Zone Management – Marine Spatial Planning Key Challenges -Strategic, objective led approach -Shared management of common sea-space (multi- use, instead of mere zoning approach) -Innovation, research to promote more efficient use of space and to make uses mutually compatible -Efforts and costs of planning process need to be paid back in clear benefits to stakeholders (e.g. reduction of regulatory burden) - Implementation : mix of instruments a plan is only as good as its implementation

9 Integrated Coastal Zone Management – Marine Spatial Planning Key Challenges -Effective nesting of plans -Coherence between policies-plans/programmes- implementation (projects) across different scales (regional sea>local) - Achieve a common understanding (principles), to foster effective cross-border strategies
