Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) requires a spatially explicit framework for decision-making and on that background the overall objective of BONUS BASMATI is to develop integrated and innovative solutions for MSP from the local to the Baltic Sea Region scale. Based on the results of former MSP projects, the BONUS BASMATI project sets out to analyse governance systems and their information needs regarding MSP in the Baltic Sea region in order to develop an operational, transnational model for MSP, while maintaining compliance with existing governance systems. It also develops methods and tools for the assessments of different plan proposals, while including spatially explicit pressures and effects on marine ecosystem services in order to create a spatial decision support system (SDSS) for the Baltic Sea region to facilitate broad access to information. During the project running until 2020, new data will be produced and tested in assessments corresponding to policy goals. The data will support analysis regarding ecosystem services: provisioning, regulating, and cultural services. A central aim of the project is to facilitate cross-border collaboration and the project is carried out in close cooperation with relevant stakeholders in the Baltic Sea Region. The impact of the project will be facilitated and assessed in transnational case studies, where integrated solutions are required. The local scale will consist of case study areas in the South-West Baltic, the Latvian territorial and EEZ waters including open part of the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Riga, and across the region, a pan-Baltic case study will be performed.
