Report of the Working Group on Marine Planning and Coastal Zone Management (WGMPCZM)
The ToRs of WGMPCZM for 2013 mainly evolved out of the ToRs in 2012. In addition to elaborating on the ToRs, during the WGMPCZM2013 a special session meeting on the last day was dedicated to new developments and future changes in the MSP Challenge Role Play and its use within MSP training, an activity WGMPCZM took over from STIG-MSP. This session started with presentations from the game developers, who joined for this session as guests. In the discussion possibilities to apply the role play within an ICES training course on MSP were discussed and a group has been formed to develop a proposal for such a training course (responding to a request from the ICES Training Group) before the ASC 2013.
