Partnership Working in Support of Marine Spatial Planning in the Irish Sea

Over the course of spring 2011, the University of Liverpool, in collaboration with the North West Coastal Forum and the United Kingdom’s National Oceanography Centre, organised two events aimed at exploring stakeholder views on the future development of transnational partnership working to support co-ordinated marine spatial planning in the Irish Sea region. The work was funded by the United Kingdom’s Economic and Social Research Council and was guided by a Steering Group which included representatives of marine planning agencies from the six jurisdictions that border the Irish Sea.  

A website has now been created for the project and a report summarising the outputs of the two events has been produced by Liverpool University. It provides an overview of:

  • the background to the initiative
  • the aims and content of the two events which were held in Liverpool and Dublin (including the presentations)
  • the outputs to emerge from stakeholder discussions
  • a proposed plan of action to foster improved transnational partnership working in the Irish Sea.
