The purpose of MSP is to agree upon the principles for the use of Estonian marine area in the long term, in order to promote the maritime economy and contribute to the achievement and maintenance of the good environmental status. In the future, the adopted MSP serves as a basis for decision-making processes for ministries and other authorities to allow different uses of the marine area. It will also serve as a guide for the activities of businesses, investors, local authorities and coastal communities.
The authority organizing the preparation of MSP is the Ministry of Finance (Spatial Planning Department). The consultant for preparing the MSP and impact assessment is Hendrikson & Ko Ltd. MSP is adopted by order of the Government of the Republic.
