Time has come for the final meetings for the Baltic SCOPE project, this time in Gothenburg. The project, led by the Swedish Agency for Marine and Water Management has been running since March 2015.
The main goal of the project is to come up with common solutions of the cross-border maritime planning leading to greater alignment of national plans. To achieve the goal, two MSP cases have been performed, where the first encompasses the Baltic Sea’s southwest area, which affects Sweden, Denmark, Germany, and Poland, and the other comprises the marine area between Estonia, Latvia, and Sweden. Both case studies have focused on how shipping traffic, energy production, fishing, and environment function in these areas and how they can compromise.
The final reports will be published in March 2017.
