Strategic Management Framework for Dublin Bay
This Strategic Management Framework (SMF) explores local level implementation of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD): a key piece of European legislation aimed at conserving and protecting Europe’s seas while allowing for the sustainable use of our natural marine resources. Early and effective stakeholder participation is a key part of MSFD. The management of Dublin Bay is also influenced by Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP). This SMF aims to feed into the MSFD and MSP processes through the development of improved communications channels, and through facilitating communication between key stakeholders.
