Decision Guide: Selecting Decision Support Tools for Marine Spatial Planning

The Woods Institute for the Environment

- N/A

Spatially explicit approaches for planning human activities, resource use, and ecosystem integrity in marine areas are gaining traction around the world. Terms such as marine spatial planning, maritime spatial planning, coastal and marine spatial planning, integrated ocean management, and systematic conservation and marine use planning, all denote similar decisionmaking approaches that use scientific and geospatial information to address conflicts and organize human activities in the ocean, while maintaining ecosystem health, function, and services. In this Decision Guide, the term marine spatial planning is used, but emphasis is placed on the systematic and spatial nature of these approaches rather than the name itself.
