A new has been published on the topic of MSP: 'MSP - Past, Present, Future'. s.Pro experts have made a significant contribution to this publication. Download the  first comprehensive overview of MSP for FREE.

Countries across the globe are beginning to implement MSP; however the authors of this collection have identified several key questions that are emerging from this growing body of MSP experience. How can MSP deal with a complex and dynamic environment such as the sea? How can MSP be embedded in multiple levels of governance across regional and national borders – and how far does the environment benefit from this new approach? This book actively engages with the problems encapsulated in these questions, and explores possible solutions.

The book is edited by s.Pro's external experts Kira Gee and Jacek Zaucha.
