Coastal Governance and Adaptation Policies in the Mediterranean. (COASTGAP)

COASTGAP aims to capitalize Best Practices concerning adaptation and governance policies of the Mediterranean coastal zones with regard to CC effects and other natural/anthropogenic threats. COASTGAP comes from the cluster FACECOAST which gathers 14 projects from SPACE MED and other European programmes. To feed next programming period 2014-2020 with an operational and coherent thematic strategy, COASTGAP aims as well to design and prepare to launch the Macro-Project “BEACHMED-3”.

Universidad Pablo de Olavide

Official integration of the Guidelines in the EIA/SEA procedures of competent MED coastal Administrations.

To create a suitable and common toolbox for MED coastal management through the customisation, transfer and adoption of the selected operational BPs for the protection/planning of coastal zone to the MED Public Administrations dealing/competent (policy makers) with coastal management.

To widen the impact at MED basin of the Bologna Charter 2012 to foster the political willingness to implement
the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) approach on coastal planning.

To set up a Macro-Project on coastal zone risk management at MED basin scale, effectively founded on the  concrete availability of the capitalized toolbox, to be provided at EU DGs in order to feed future actions and strategies for the next programming period 2014-2020 in relation to the pressing problem of MED coastal zone adaptation to climate change effects

Deep technical and consistency analyses, setting up a win-win relationship between Partners Proposing Best Practices (BP) and Partners Interested. This analyses aims to highlight and cope with technical and/or formal lacks of the BPs/outputs as regards to the needs and specific features raised up by partners/other Organisation involved.
