In the new version of the Strategy for the Development of Maritime Activities of the Russian Federation up to 2030, approved by Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation on 30 August 2019 No 1930-r, the main priorities for the development of the maritime activities in the long term prospective include transition to integrated planning for the development of coastal areas, based on the land-sea component of strategies for the socio-economic development of coastal regions. The planned transfer of a number of powers for the management of maritime activities from the national to the regional authorities will allow the land-sea component of the strategies to be enriched with specific content.
Maritime spatial planning (MSP) is one of the most important tools for solving this problem. The Russian MSP Roadmap currently being developed within the framework of the Baltic MSP platform (Capacity4MSP project, Interreg. Baltic Sea Region program) should give an impetus to the development of maritime spatial planning in Russia and its integration into the international MSP process.
The objectives of «the round table» are:
• to discuss the main issues and problems of planning for the development of maritime activities in the Russian Federation from the point of view of the national authorities and the coastal entities of the federation;
• to elaborate common approaches to maritime spatial planning in the strategic planning system for the development of maritime activities in the Russian Federation in compliance with the main provisions of the Strategy;
• to assess applicability of the best international practices in this area to the special Russian conditions, taking into account the spatial heterogeneity of Russia’s maritime complex and regional challenges in developing a blue economy.
