Outline usage and management North Sea

This coherent story has been included in the National Water Plan as the appendix 'Policy Document on the North Sea'. However, this policy document only indicates the broad lines. Both the management tasks and the use of the North Sea entail many, very diverse aspects, most of which are rather complex.

After all, the North Sea policy is comprehensive.
