Marine spatial planning (MSP) is a public process that should be participatory, transparent, adaptive, inclusive and balance social, economic, and environmental needs. Building relationships and collaborating with all stakeholders, including traditionally underrepresented and marginalized groups, is key to the long-term success of MSP. Having an inclusive MSP process is important because it can help create jobs and economic opportunities for communities in new and existing coastal and maritime sectors, and enable governments to meet their social targets and employment goals. This can result in better outcomes, because involving a wide range of stakeholders can create a diversity of perspectives, new ideas, and innovative solutions.
