A new run of the MedOpen Advanced Course in ICZM in the Mediterranean starts on September 16. The aim of the Course is to improve capacities for coastal management, which will subsequently facilitate sustainable coastal development in the Mediterranean.
By the decision of the SHAPE project Steering Committee, the 2013 MedOpen Advanced Course is organised for the SHAPE project partners. The main objective of the Course is to make the SHAPE partners familiar with the ICZM in general, and in particular with the ICZM Process, being crucial for the implementation of pilot projects.
The course, which will be lasting for 12 weeks, will be attended by 22 trainees who, in addition to the ICZM in general and the ICZM process, will be presented the ICZM benefits, actors and responsibilities, legislation and finances needed, tools and techniques, the ICZM Protocol, as well as good practices in coastal management. The trainees will also be provided with the opportunity to experience a simulated coastal management situation and participate in finding practical sustainable solutions.
