This research contributes to the topic of Marine Spatial Planning, which claims that the rapidly increasing demand for sea space for food production, renewable energy, sand extraction, protection and shipping are leading to conflicts that need solutions. In fact, this research goes one step further and elaborates on the impact of climate change on this rapidly increasing sea use claims. This research contributes to potential solutions in co-production of knowledge with stakeholders, and explores future possibilities by means of risk assessment tools, regulatory approaches, scenario analysis and public acceptance.
The research conducted in 2016 involved conference presentation and stakeholder workshop, as well as two draft articles sent for publication in international journals. This creates a basis for the study in 2017 to explore and develop theories of smart marine governance and associated stakeholder behaviour.
