"Think Baltic, Act Regionally"

Successful Maritime Spatial Planning for the Baltic Sea relies on the following:

> Spatial connectivity… Planners need to “think connectively” in terms of linear infrastructure, corridors and patches.

> Spatial efficiency… Uses are concentrated as much as possible to keep other areas free. Multiple spatial uses are promoted. Baltic Sea space is no repository for problematic land uses.

> Spatial subsidiarity: Spatial challenges are dealt with at the lowest most appropriate spatial level.

> National prerequisites: All Baltic Sea states establish structures that allow them to apply maritime spatial planning.

> International prerequisites: Planners ensure coherence with Baltic Sea wide targets and transnational connectivity by means of international consultation and concertation.

> A transnational MSP coordinating body… has been set up.
