Potential implications and challenges of recent and emerging European policy and Directives such as the Maritime Policy and Maritime Strategy

Location: Galway, Ireland
Event Type: Meeting
Event Date: 2006-11-08    

Event Description:
The green paper regarding Maritime Policy for the EU sets out many critical challenges for the Commission and the EU Member States.

The Lisbon Agenda (growth and Jobs) is clearly reflected in the references to innovation, knowledge and technology, competitiveness, skills and employment, clustering and so on.

However, the Gothenburg agenda (sustainable development) also permeates the document, with references to environment, quality of life, environmental risk and more.

The challenges are great in bringing all these aspects together in a policy framework which truly reflects the principles of sustainable development. To what extent can the environment be enhanced, but also exploited for tourism for example? Can we increase the attractiveness of coastal areas at the same time as developing maritime industries? To what extent is environmental risk a threat to competitiveness?

These questions and more will be explored in this conference, delivered by CoastNet as part of the Interreg–funded Corepoint project. Conference outputs will be submitted to the EU as part of the response to the consultation on the Green Paper.
