ICZM and MSP initiatives promoted in Montenegro

28.01.2014

As part of the CAMP Montenegro, the Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism in co-operation with the Coastal Zone Management Authority organised a workshop on the promotion of initiatives for Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) and Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) in Montenegro. The workshop, which was held in Budva, on 28 January 2014, was attended by about 80 participants, including representatives of institutions at the local and national level, NGOs, private sector and other relevant institutions.

At the introductory part of the workshop, the participants were informed of the results and goals of the CAMP Montenegro and the SHAPE project. After that they were presented a methodology for creating the Coastal Area Special Plan for the coastal area of Montenegro. In the second part of the workshop, the vision of sustainable development of coastal areas was presented, as well as the key problems related to ICZM in Montenegro in terms of integration of environmental objectives into sectoral policies in the context of the implementation of ICZM instruments. After the presentation of results of the expert work carried out in the framework of the CAMP Montenegro, the participants expressed the ideas and opinions during the discussion, and completed questionnaires referring to the DPSIR analysis of the key issues.

According to estimates of the participants, the workshop largely justified their expectations. Proposals and comments that were presented within the participatory process will be evaluated by the expert team and used as the input for the drafting of the National Strategy for Integrated Coastal Zone Management of Montenegro.
