The Israel Marine Spatial Plan aims to answer the need for effective, strategic, and integrative management tools for Israel’s marine space. It should be noted that, at the same time, various government bodies (with the foremost among them the Planning Administration of the Ministry of the Interior) and many stakeholders with an interest in the planning process, are undertaking initiatives to research and better understand the sea. The Israel Marine Spatial Plan will support and integrate itself with these other initiatives to advance collective objective of generating a comprehensive, information-and science-based marine plan for balanced, effective, and sustainable management of Israel’s marine resources. The Israel Marine Spatial Plan will serve all stakeholders who have an interest in the marine space: government bodies and enforcement and administrative systems and the public at large.
