Focus of the workshop

我们的海洋受各种人类活动影响,特别是捕鱼业和矿产开发。为了保护海洋资源和生态系统功能,《联合国可持续发展目标》和《生物多样性公约》设定了一个宏大目标,即到 2020 年将 10% 的沿海和海洋区域纳入海洋保护区。目前这一目标尚未达成。只有大约 5% 的海洋受到了保护。到 2030 年,保护世界三分之一的专属经济区已被确立为新的目标。
海洋空间规划( Marine spatial planning, MSP )对于有效实现此目标起着关键作用。 MSP 旨在兼顾海上活动的管理和海洋资源与生物多样性的保护。这一规划强调在生态保护和经济发展之间取得平衡以实现可持续发展。社会层面的目标使得这种平衡的实现更为复杂,因此在大多 MSP 研究中被选择性忽略。
为此,本研讨会旨在为青年学者提供关于 MSP 丰富的理论知识和应用实例,通过讲座和互动活动的结合来平衡不同目标间的需求。

Our oceans are almost entirely impacted by different anthropogenic activities such as fishing and mining. To protect marine resources and ecosystems, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Convention on Biological Diversity set a target to protect 10% of the oceans by 2020 through the establishment of Marine Protected Areas. This target has not been reached and only about 5% of the ocean is currently protected. Protecting a third of the world’s Economic Exclusive Zones by 2030 has been recently established as a new target. 
Marine spatial planning (MSP) plays a key role to achieving the effective implementation of this target. MSP aims to ensure the protection of marine resources and biodiversity while managing maritime activities. This highlights the importance of achieving a balance between ecological and economic objectives to achieve sustainable development. Social objectives add another layer of complexity to achieving this balance and have mostly been overlooked in MSP. 
To this end, this workshop aims to provide ECRs with a strong theoretical and applied understanding of MSP and the need to balance different objectives using a combination of lectures and interactive activities.
