EBM Tools Webinar 7 Feb 2018

Join EBM Tools Network for a special web panel discussion: Impacts of the proposed offshore drilling plan on MPAs and regional marine spatial plans in the USA. 

The US Administration has proposed a plan to significantly expand oil and gas drilling in US waters. This panel will explore the potential impacts of that plan on existing ocean management frameworks, including marine protected areas (MPAs) and marine spatial plans. Among other issues, the panel will address: where the proposed drilling plan goes from here (next steps, timelines); potential impacts of the plan on National Marine Sanctuaries and Marine National Monuments; potential impacts on existing regional marine spatial plans; and potential impacts on offshore renewable energy development.
