Description

This report summarises the key findings and conclusions from the Rhode Island case study that is part of the EC-funded Study on international best-practices of cross-border maritime spatial planning. The case study was conducted primarily in Rhode Island (RI), with shorter visits to Massachusetts (MA) and New Hampshire (NH) between 28 September and 7 October 2016. It focused on the processes of planning and implementing the Rhode Island Ocean Special Area Management Plan (Ocean SAMP), and on its outcomes since adoption in 2011. The crossjurisdictional dimensions studied include interactions between state and federal authorities across the state-federal marine waters boundary; and between neighbouring states, with particular focus on Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
