BARE for the beaches

15.11.2006

On November 10, 2006, in Trogir (Croatia), PAP/RAC co-organised the first thematic seminar on "Sustainable management of bathing areas in Croatia”, together with Association for Nature, Environment and Sustainable Development “Sunce” and Regional Centre for Assistance and Disaster Relief.

The main objective of the meeting was to discuss the application of Bathing Area Registration and Evaluation (BARE) technique on the Croatian beaches, as well as to explore the possibility of developing sustainable beach management strategy for Croatia.

In the framework of sustainable beach management programme, PAP/RAC has presented its activities in the application of the BARE technique on the Mediterranean beaches. Furthermore, development of Beach Management Guidelines has been announced. Guidelines will be developed in the English language, based on recent studies made by PAP/RAC concerning the state of beach management in the Mediterranean, as well as on the findings of on-going innovative research in this field. Beach management guidelines will be presented as an integral component of ICZM reflecting current knowledge on best practice methodology and as an aid to effective management. Various beach types (resort, urban, village, rural and remote) and beach management / rating schemes will also be explained.
