Sectoral policies can implement their goals better and more effective when they know and consider territorial development conditions and effects. In practice, however, this is often hampered by inadequate knowledge of territorial interrelations or lack of clarity on benefits of integrated territorial development approaches. Therefore, the study works out, whether and how sectoral policies benefit from the consideration of territorial development objectives by using the example of maritime policy. The study shows in particular, whether and how the maritime policy exploits their potential for integration and is implemented more effectively by considering territorial correlations. Using concrete examples, It describes with concrete examples how European regional development projects apply integrated territorial development approaches (place-based approaches). The investigations prove that Maritime Spatial Planning (as part of the maritime policy) causes more legal and planning security, reduces transaction costs and conflicts and thus brings about significant benefits for the maritime economy and its stakeholders. Overall, knowledge generation, coordination and balance of interests, legal and planning security, cost reduction through efficiency and optimization of sectoral interests are identified as the main benefits of considering spatial interests.
