The vision phase

The vision phase of Maritime Spatial Planning is in progress. The aim of the visions is to steer and target the activities of operators and planners.

Vision work will include creation of the national vision, sector-specific visions and roadmaps for sectors on how to achieve the visions. Vision work takes into account the situational picture of sectors (strengths and weaknesses), the authorities’ policies for the use of marine areas and observations of scenario work (threats and opportunities).

Work on the Maritime Spatial Planning vision started in October 2019. The www.merialueenvisiot.info (only in Finnish) website has been launched for this purpose. The site describes the work with the vision, its progress and preliminary results. The site also offers an opportunity to leave comments.
