The German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) conducted a meeting on the draft maritime spatial plan in the German Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ) of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea on the 27th of January 2021. Participants particularly came from the neighbouring coastal states and further countries in the North and Baltic Seas Regions, but also from Southern Africa. This meeting allowed the participants again to get involved and make suggestions regarding the designations in the plan. All documents were published on the BSH website prior the meeting and all stakeholders had the opportunity to submit a statement.
BSH would like to thank all participants for the helpful discussions, suggestions and comments.
