Best Practice Guidelines

The Celtic Seas Partnership is producing a series of Best Practice Guidelines to help marine stakeholders work and co-exist in ways which promote healthy, productive seas – towards the EU’s target of ‘Good Environmental Status’. 

The three sets of guidelines will cover:

  • transboundary marine governance – working across borders
  • co-location of marine renewable energy projects with other marine users and interests
  • conflict resolution and sectoral interaction between marine stakeholders

We have now produced these guidelines in draft, informed by:

–  facilitated discussions at our own national and multi-national workshops throughout 2015, and the Irish Sea maritime Forum MSFD/MSP Working Group workshop held in Belfast last September

–  comments from the project Observer Board and Expert Advisory Group

–  ten case study investigations and reports from across the Celtic Seas (and beyond), namely:

Thanks to all those who responded to the consultation on the draft guidelines. We are now reviewing your comments and will publish the final versions later in 2016.
