Experts with backgrounds in the science, policy, and practice of Coastal and Marine Spatial Planning (CMSP) were convened to identify top priorities for advancing CMSP over the next one to five years. Particular attention was given to the need and opportunity to inform the U.S. National Ocean Council process to develop a strategic action plan in 2011 for implementing CMSP in the United States. Workshop participants developed, reviewed and then distilled a broad range of potential priorities during a day and a half of deliberations.
