About the project:

The Mediterranean basin is one of the most important hotspots of biodiversity in the world in terms of the richness of species and ecosystems. Human activities and overexploitation of natural resources are resulting in ecosystem degradation and species loss at an alarming rate, requiring a coordinated transnational approach.

Sustainable use, management, protection or restoration of species, habitats or ecosystems aimed at preserving biological diversity implies the involvement of stakeholders from related economic sectors and citizens, all in accordance with the European political framework that promotes participatory approaches.

The project focuses on environmental management in a way that operates at the local and community level, which is reflected in the increasing impact on economic sectors that are influenced by ecological principles. The project applies environmental management in coastal areas exposed to the influence of anthropogenic pressures and results in the establishment of multi-stakeholder management mechanisms with the aim of improved management of natural resources on land and sea.

The project operates strategically at the methodological level, by ensuring the conditions for environmental management and creating a methodology for the further transfer of the COASTRUST approach beyond the scope of the project to the benefit of every citizen of the Mediterranean, and at the implementation level by supporting and monitoring the development of pilot activities. The project will develop a coastal management strategy and a series of activities for each target area according to its specificities, needs and environmental goals.
