CONSULTATION: Action Plan for improving coherence on the MSFD implementation in the Macaronesia subregion

The project MISTIC SEAS, especially Workpackage 5, aims to develop an Action Plan to guide competent authorities of the three archipelagos of Macaronesia to improve the coherence and coordination of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive’ implementation.

The Action Plan that was designed under these discussions is now subject to consultation to stakeholders and general public. The purpose of this consultation is to receive contributions and suggestions of all the potential contributors and users of the sea (scientific community, NGOs, private sector, civil society, etc).

The consultation will be open until 10 February 2017. Documents (in English, Portuguese and Spanish) can be consulted below. Any comment and suggestion should be sent by e-mail to the following address: A final report with the received contributions, as well as an explanation of how they have been incorporated will be prepared, and uploaded in this webpage. The final Action Plan, will also be available in this webpage, once it is adopted by the competent authorities.
