Green Fire Productions interviewed global marine spatial planning leaders who had gathered to discuss solutions to the top ten challenges they face.  The series of brief video interviews, Insights from Leaders: Practical Solutions on Ocean Planning, is now available online. Please check them out and share with your colleagues.

These short, to-the-point interviews represent a significant achievement in the capture of good practices and lessons learned in marine spatial planning and offer wisdom and guidance on ocean management from experienced professionals including advice on creating strong management plans in the face of budget uncertainties, engaging stakeholders in the planning process, integrating MSP into the mainstream and more tips and insights. Produced in collaboration with University of Rhode Island Coastal Resources Center, Rhode Island Sea Grant and OpenChannels.
