The objective of this handbook is to provide concrete guidance on how Underwater Cultural Heritage may be considered and incorporated in the Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) process in order to overcome these threats, be established in practical terms, and subsequently developed. Thus, this handbook addresses relevant initiatives in their different stages of development: from those that are just starting up, to those that are already well-established, and looks at ways to achieve an ideal balance and give a new impetus to the nexus between the protection and preservation of UCH and the development of a sustainable blue economy in European seas.
