Summary This course is primarily intended for decision makers and professionals responsible for the planning and management of marine areas and their resources. It is especially targeted to situations in which time, finances, information and other resources are Iimited. The course provides an introductory, but comprehensive, overview of MSP. It focuses on describing a logical sequence of 10 critical steps that are all required to achieve desired goals and objectives for marine areas. It does not focus on the technical details of any one of the steps, e.g., it is not intended to be a course that will help to develop a marine geographic information system or implement a performance monitoring system. When available, references to existing technical guides, handbooks, and websites are suggested in the course materials. This course can help professionals at the international, regional, national, and sub-national levels who want to know more about the promise and potential of MSP as a way to achieve multiple goals and objectives, including sustainable economic development and biodiversity conservation within a specified marine area.
