Mediterranean Coast Day 2014

2600 - Strategic Partnership for the Mediterranean Large Marine Ecosystem--Regional Component: Implementation of agreed actions for the protection of the environmental resources of the Mediterranean Sea and its coastal areas

18 Sep 2014

It has become tradition in the Mediterranean to celebrate the Coast Day after it had first been organised in 2007. Its main purpose is to raise awareness of the importance of the coast as both natural and economic resource, as well as to warn of the risks it is exposed to due to natural phenomena and human actions. ICZM is extensively promoted as the optimal policy framework for achieving sustainable development of coastal areas. a short animation produced by PAP/RAC under the MedPartnership project
