Caring for our Coasts - Mediterranean and Italian Experiences

20.01.2017

Under the main theme of "Caring for our Coasts - Mediterranean and Italian Experiences", the CAMP Italy held its final conference on Tuesday 17 January 2017 in Rome in the presence of Mrs. Maria Carmela Giarratano, General Director of the Ministry of the Environment, Land, and Sea Protection of Italy, and Mr. Gaetano Leone, Co-ordinator of UNEP/MAP. The conference presented the main results and methodologies of the two-year project, and their integration within the Mediterranean and international contexts.

Within the framework of the project, the three regions, namely, Emilia-Romagna, Sardinia and Tuscany, developed strategies and procedures for the rational use of coastal and marine resources and the environmental protection, with the objective of identifying and operatively testing methodologies, instruments and best practices for sustainable development of the coast and valorization of the Italian historical heritage and landscape. Tools and methodologies developed were not only useful for the management of the project, but also replicable within the network of CAMP projects and useful for the institutions in charge of coastal management.
