Work Package 2:

A review to understand the current legislative gaps to implement MSP

One of the main elements for Marine Spatial Planning is the endorsement of clear policies by Government. The Darwin-Plus funded MSP project provided high level policies (the vision and objectives) that were agreed by the Executive Council, and there is now an opportunity to formalise these high end policies within Falkland Islands Government.  To understand how MSP could be implemented from legal framework perspective, it is important to understand what current legislation exists with respect to the management of the marine environment.

This legislative review is currently ongoing, but come back here to find the latest updates.
