6 GREEN PAPER on Maritime Policy - PlanCoast Statement 2nd PlanCoast Meeting Constanta ICZM: basic terms Two aspects need clarifying: The role of ICZM: ICZM is not just ONE of the chapters within the structure of the Maritime Policy, but should build the core this policy. Its strong relationship to maritime spatial planning should be stressed Definition Coastal Zone

7 GREEN PAPER on Maritime Policy - PlanCoast Statement 2nd PlanCoast Meeting Constanta Successful implementation of ICZM ICZM needs a vision Spatial Planning is the core ICZM player It should take an even bigger role in future providing a necessary framework through existing structures and methods, e.g. for impact assessment and wider public participation The responsibility should be taken up by political bodies of all levels No new institutions should be created!

9 GREEN PAPER on Maritime Policy - PlanCoast Statement 2nd PlanCoast Meeting Constanta Maritime spatial planning for sustainable development PlanCoast strongly supports the idea of a European Maritime Spatial Planning System In countries where the terrestrial solutions are well functioning: extension of principles of terrestrial planning towards the sea In the remaining countries maritime planning has to be introduced on a wholly innovative basis, based on EU guidelines (e.g.handbook) Coherent methodology guidelines

10 GREEN PAPER on Maritime Policy - PlanCoast Statement 2nd PlanCoast Meeting Constanta Martime spatial plans to cover following issues: 1.Environmental protection 2.Protection and sustainable management of natural resources 3.Wind energy plants 4.Main shipping routes 5.Cables and pipelines 6.Fishing 7.Tourism.

11 GREEN PAPER on Maritime Policy - PlanCoast Statement 2nd PlanCoast Meeting Constanta How can planning on land and sea be made compatible? Coastal and maritime planning approaches have to be holistic The principles of ICZM: integration, participation, ecosystem approach, GIS etc. are also suitable for maritime planning Territorial Impact Assessment (TIA)
