The Paddle project

Marine Spatial Planning

Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) is " a process that aims to coherently organise human activities in the marine environment" (Annie Cudennec, 2014). After early implementation in northern countries, MSP is now spreading to tropical environments. What are the opportunities and limits of this process for Tropical Atlantic ?

An interdisciplinary team

The Paddle project brings together 17 academic and non-academic partners in an original interdiciplinary partnership. It aims to provide a wide scope analysis of stakes of MSP in Tropical Atlantic and create the first North-South platform on this topic.
