NIEL is a member of the Northern Ireland Marine Task Force (NIMTF). NIMTF is a coalition of non–government environmental organisations, including RSPB, Ulster Wildlife, Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust, National Trust, Friends of the Earth, Irish Whale and Dolphin Group. The NIMTF has the support of approximately 100,000 local people. We are working towards healthy, productive and resilient seas for Northern Ireland.

nimtf

The aim of the NIMTF is for Northern Ireland to have healthy, productive and resilient seas now and into the future. NIMTF is part of a UK–wide campaign together with sister organisations in England, Scotland and Wales campaigning for effective marine legislation for all UK seas. The NIMTF successfully advocated for the introduction of a NI Marine Act (2013).

Marine Spatial Planning

Marine spatial planning is a public process of analysing and allocating the spatial and temporal distribution of human activities in marine areas to achieve ecological, economic, and social objectives that usually have been specified through a political process. Characteristics of marine spatial planning include ecosystem–based, area–based, integrated, adaptive, strategic and participatory.

Marine spatial planning is not an end in itself, but a practical way to create and establish a more rational use of marine space and the interactions among its uses, to balance demands for development with the need to protect the environment, and to deliver social and economic outcomes in an open and planned way. (IOC–UNESCO Marine Spatial Planning Programme)

Members of NIMTF include:

Friends of the Earth NI;
Irish Whale and Dolphin Group;
National Trust;
Northern Ireland Environment Link;
Royal Society for the Protection of Birds;
