Marine Spatial Planning of Israel-Framework


Introduction Framework Stakeholders Reports GIS ASDA Project


The Israel Marine Spatial Plan aims to answer the need for effective, strategic, and integrative management tools for Israel’s marine space. It should be noted that, at the same time, various government bodies, foremost among which are the Planning Administration within the Ministry of the Interior and many stakeholders with an interest in the planning process, are undertaking initiatives to research and better understand the sea. The process of preparing the Israel Marine Spatial Plan aims to support and integrate itself with other initiatives, with the collective objective of generating a comprehensive, information- and knowledge-based marine plan that will facilitate balanced, effective, and sustainable management of Israel’s marine resources, and will serve all stakeholders who have an interest in the marine space, foremost among which are government bodies and enforcement and administrative systems.
