Talk:EU Maritime Policy: Green Paper 2006
Review by Job Dronkers (January 2013)
This article describes the birth and background of the European Integrated Maritime Policy (IMP). I have updated a few obsolete website links. For the latest developments the reader should consult the article Integrated Maritime Policy for the European Union and the website of the European Commission.
Financial support for the implementation of the European Maritime Policy is foreseen through the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF). The scope of the proposed EMFF covers support to the IMP for the development and implementation of coordinated operations and decision-making in relation to the oceans, seas, coastal regions and maritime sectors. The IMP complements related EU policies, notably the Common Fisheries Policies and policies for transport, industry, territorial cohesion, environment, energy and tourism.
