Strunjan, Slovenia.
Let’s make a real Adri Plan

Aim of the Workshop
According to the new Directive “Establishing a Framework for Maritime Spatial Planning - MSP”, adopted in July 2015, EU coastal Member States are requested to implement maritime spatial plans by 31 March 2021.
The pilot project ADRIPLAN, Adriatic and Ionian maritime spatial planning, funded by the European Commission (DG MARE), aims to deliver a common approach to cross-border MSP in the Adriatic-Ionian Region, zooming into two focus areas, one in the Northern Adriatic and the other in Southern Adriatic - Northern Ionian.

The workshop has the main objective of performing a real “planning exercise”, in which the participants will build a “possible” maritime spatial plan in the Northern Adriatic Sea. Stakeholders with knowledge and expertise in different maritime sectors will identify the possible planning options and elaborate a spatial allocation (zoning) draft in a proposed area. Taking into consideration the peculiarities of the area, as well as the strategic needs and objectives emerged from the ADRIPLAN Initial Assessment and the previous stakeholders consultations, three themes have been selected for playing a pivotal role in the planning exercise:
  • Energy, including (e.g.) LNG terminals, Hydrocarbon investigation and exploitation, power cables and pipelines.
  • Maritime transport, including maritime transport activities related to tourism.
  • Ports development, with a focus on the enhancement of intermodality.

Around each pivotal themes, ALL the other sectoral themes will be considered, in order to compose a comprehensive and coherent plan for ALL marine and maritime activities, including TOURISM, which represent an economic priority in all the Adriatic Ionian Region. Specific issues will be tackled during the workshop, taking into account their cross-border relevance, the local problems, the conflicts between different uses of other sectors/activities and the threats to the environment. The workshop will be structured in an interactive way with presentations and discussion rounds.

The hosting institution is the Regionalni Razvojni Center Koper - RDCK (Slovenia) The participation is free of charge and the deadline for the registration is the 24th February 2015.
