The National Ocean Policy at 5 Years: Ocean Planning 101
Ocean planning is a hot topic here at CLF, and, while we have been plugged into the process in New England for a few years, newbies understandably find that the term “ocean planning” can, for lack of a better term, confuse more than clarify. For those passionate about the health of our oceans (you, I bet!) but confused about what ocean planning means for New England, consider this post your “Ocean Planning 101” crash course.
Ocean planning is underway in the Northeast. We are the first region in the nation to have a formal planning body at work on developing a true regional ocean plan. Learn more about the meetings, requests for public comment, and other ways you can get involved as a stakeholder in New England’s ocean future.
The New England Ocean Action Network (NEOAN) is a diverse network of organizations, individuals and industries working together to promote new approaches to ocean management in our region based on collaboration, cooperation and sound science.
