Strategic coastal protection actions to develop sustainable Blue Growth

Document Actions

Fiera di Rimini, 6 november

The management and protection of the shorelines, also in relation to current climate change, is a strategic issue for a country like Italy with about 7,500 km of coastline, for the conservation of coastal habitats, ecosystems and  socio-economic development mainly to coastal and maritime tourism and to the European strategy of "Blue Growth".

Since some year the Italian Ministry of Environment, in cooperation with ISPRA, Italian Coastal Regions, the District Authorities, the Scientific and Research Community, has started a work-strategy (the National Table on Coastal Erosion - TNEC) which takes into account the Recommendation 2002/413 / EC on the Integrated Management of Coastal Zones and the GIZC Protocol for the Mediterranean (Barcelona Convention), to elaborate in a shared way an overall strategy for the protection and management of Italian coasts.
