Coasts, conflicts and intangible heritage

The coastal areas likely to be hardest hit by climate change are the ones where people have the least choice of livelihood. Yet, the strong ties of Mediterranean society with its natural setting may yet prove valuable in combating environmental degradation.

An initiative between Malta, Greece, Cyprus and Italy has produced a book entitled Coasts and Conflicts, which aims to harmonise integration in the Mediterranean region.

A response to a call issued by the EU inter-regional funding mechanism saw the birth of ECONET-COHAST, an ecological network to bring conservation strategies in line to save coastal habitats, which are recognised as valuable on a European scale.
