Coastal & Marine Plans
Coastal and marine plans have been developed to guide the sustainable management of coastal and marine areas in B.C.
Marine Planning Partnership for the North Pacific Coast (MaPP)
The Marine Plan Partnership is a co-lead initiative between the Province of B.C. and 17 member First Nations. Together, the partners developed four sub-regional marine plans and a regional action framework for the North Pacific Coast using an ecosystem-based management approach to make recommendations for marine uses and activities within plan area. Plan implementation is underway.
The initiative used the best available science and local and traditional knowledge to develop four sub-regional plans and a regional action framework.
