WHY IS NAMIBIA IMPLEMENTING MSP?
Namibia is a maritime nation with a rich ocean wealth and an ocean area that is approximately 2/3 the size of its land area. The ocean is fundamental for the well-being of Namibians as it provides valuable services and resources for multiple sectors. Current use and management of the ocean space is mainly based on silo sector management.
MSP is a relatively new way of improving the management of human activities that take place in the ocean. MSP entails a strategic and long-term public development planning process that guides where and when human activates occur in the sea. MSP coherently organizes the use of space and its marine resources to guide single-sector decision-making and provide for comprehensive, integrated and complementary planning, management and governance of the ocean.
