EC consultation: Europe's coastal and marine areas - Commission seeks views on how to reduce pressure on Europe's coastal and marine areas - (including the EU Outermost Regions)

Coastal and marine areas offer significant opportunities for economic development, leisure and living. They host rich but fragile biodiversity. Transparent planning and management of European waters are needed to balance the interests at play against sustaining the long-term benefit of coastal and marine resources to society.

With these objectives in mind, the European Commission has launched a public consultation to explore options for future EU action on Maritime Spatial Planning and Integrated Coastal Zone Management.
