Mediterranean project for the improvement of co-operation on training between universities, regions and enterprises

Summary
The development potential of many European coastal regions depends on environments and resources that are under growing pressure from human activities such as urbanisation, maritime transport and industrial development. Particularly in semi-enclosed areas such as the Mediterranean, the environment of marine and coastal areas requires an integrated approach to coastal planning and watershed management. This aim of this project is to develop and implement a continuing vocational training programme in coastal planning. The work will involve three one-week courses targeted at medium and high-level coastal planners from public administrations and utility services, as well as graduates interested in working in this developing sector.

The three short courses will respectively be devoted to the physical coastal and watershed environment; socio-economic issues and legal and administrative arrangements in coastal planning; and finally a series of case studies from the north-western Mediterranean. Products will include a reference book on coastal management in English, French and Italian, computer-based training materials, a CD-Rom and hypertexts.

Impact
It is expected that the creation of new competences in coastal planning and management will have a positive impact on environment and employment conditions in the regions involved.
