Maritime Spatial Planning

Maritime Spatial Plan (MSP) of Latvia is a national level long-term (up to 12 years) spatial development planning document that shall define the use of the sea, considering a terrestrial part that is functionally interlinked with the sea and co-ordinating interests of various sectors and local governments in use of the sea. The MSP covers internal sea waters, territorial sea and exclusive economic zone.

Development of the plan was started in 2014 when a national MSP coordination group was established and initial enlightening seminar about national MSP for general public was organized. The first draft was prepared during 2015. National public consultations and cross-border consultations within the framework of Espo Convention were held in late 2015 and early 2016. Currently the 2nd version of the plan is elaborated and repeated national consultations and cross-border consultations within the framework of Espo Convention are carried out. It is expected that plan will be approved by the Government in 2018.
