BARE workshop in Malta

18.05.2005

Under the aegis of the Mediterranean Action Plan, the Priority Action Programme Regional Activity Centre (PAP/RAC) has launched a regional study (2004/2005) to evaluate the state of beach management in the Mediterranean. The project is based on recent research that has resulted in the development of a Bathing Area Registration & Evaluation (BARE) technique that assesses beach quality in an objective manner and facilitates beach management through consideration of beach quality and/or shortfalls in a wide spectrum of beach types (resort, urban, village, rural and remote).
In the context of this PAP/RAC project, a Workshop on the Application of the Bathing Area Registration & Evaluation (BARE) System in Mediterranean Coastal States will be organised on June 10-11, 2005, in Malta. Fifteen Mediterranean countries have nominated their representatives to participate in the Workshop. The participants will make brief presentations on beach management practice and policy in their countries and participate in a discussion of the BARE technique that will be presented during the meeting.
