Workshop on Shipping and Ports (1)

  • Port industry - Key findings:

  • Limited dialogue on MSP implications for ports on a pan-Baltic level; Low interest; No platform, communication gaps between different levels.

  • Enormous pressure from city developers: Growing cities versus expanding ports - Cities are taking over port areas.

  • Ports moving from the city centers, into coastal sea areas, closer to the shipping lanes;

  • Concentration to fewer, higly developed ports;

  • Container ships larger deeper and wider lanes;

  • New future navigation structures and corridorsrequired.

  • Consideration to be taken with new pipelines & cables

Workshop on Shipping and PortsKey findings Ports (2)

  • MSP planners should establish a continuing dialogue with the transport market players (the driver) to learn about future developments and needs of ports/shipping;

  • MSP planners should focus on the container sector – the bulk market always finds their “own ways”, independent of shipping corridors;

  • Long licensing procedures for port development  ports must become involved in MSP at a very early stage.

  • Ports are individual players - they lack a unified voice.

  • Ports act on the local, regional, national and international arena: The communication level depend on the issue;

  • A need for port organizations to get early input from MSP.


Workshop on shipping and ports key findings shipping 1

Workshop on Shipping and PortsKey findings – Shipping (1)

  • Shifts in trade - huge impacts on shipping patterns - can be predicted;

  • MSP should take account to increased demand for seaborne transports;

  • Increase expected in general cargo, but most of all container;

  • The B Sea can expect larger container carriers with specific needs considering navigation, routes and MSP;

  • Successful example of changing ship traffic lanes: Norway;

  • Early “flexible” drafts of plans to get sectors on the arena;

  • Few resources to participate continuously in the planning process;

Workshop on Shipping and PortsKey findings – Shipping (2)

  • Smart MSP may have positive effects on shipping economy, maritime safety;

  • Benefits of coordinating shipping routes and other uses in the same “office”;

  • Enhanced communication & early discussions with shipping authorities is essential

  • Shipping sector is scattered in terms of stakeholders and lacks information on MSP.

  • The focus should also be on the cargo owner (transport buyer)

  • Use existing platforms for MSP interactions with the shipping sector: IMO, IALA, IHO, ICS

  • Create tools for transnational and bilateral communication on maritime spatial plans.

Workshop on Climate Change (1)

  • Key findings: Need of

  • Strategic approach,

  • Awareness rising in the field of CCA and MSP/ICZP,

  • Communication and information strategies,

  • Easily interpreted information/Visualisation of data

  • Structure for dialogue and support

  • Common “language” between researchers and planners.

  • “what is in it for me”-perspective for the key drivers & key implementers!

Workshop on Climate Change (2)

  • Key findings: Need of

  • Pan-Baltic cooperation - on different levels

  • Adaptive and flexible planning process(uncertainty of climate change prognoses and other changes).

  • Plan for the unexpected.

  • Multiplayer perspective

  • Multifunctional perspective

  • Cases & experiences

  • Coordination and guidelines at European level

Workshops on Shipping and Ports & Climate change

  • Some lessons learned:

  • Careful selection of speakers needed to ensure appropriate contribution to the workshop agenda

  • Keep presentations short – focus on question, answers, discussions

  • Prepare key questions for discussion

  • Establish contacts, especially with the industry for continuous dialogue
