Within its programme of activities, PAP/RAC organised an expert meeting “Towards Mediterranean Regional Strategy on Coastal Erosion: Benefiting from the EUROSION Project“. It was focused on the EUROSION project (www.eurosion.org) implemented by the EU.
It was a very successful project that resulted in recommendations for combating erosion in the EU countries. In agreement with the EU, it was decided to consider the possibilities of using the EUROSION results in the Mediterranean countries with the objective of defining a strategy of erosion combating in the Mediterranean in the near future.
Thus, the main objective of this meeting was to identify the parts of the EUROSION project that could be applied in the Mediterranean and to prepare an appropriate programme of activities. The meeting was organised in Nicosia, Cyprus, on March 16 - 17, 2006. It was attended by experts from 11 countries and the EU, as well as a number of observers from Cyprus. A complete list of participants and other details of the meeting will be presented in the meeting report to be completed in due time.
