ECONET-COHAST

Ecological network for the promotion of convergent conservation strategies in coastal habitats of community significance

EU Community Initiative Programme Interreg IIIB Archimed

Econet 

The aim of the ECONET-COHAST project was to promote convergent conservation strategies at landscape scale for coastal habitats considered to be of European Community significance. The project sought to establish a network of stakeholders and a knowledge base on impact assessment for coastal habitats, in order to support capacity building and policy actions throughout the region, thus providing a supporting framework for management planning within Natura 2000 sites in the Mediterranean.

The project was coordinated by the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Chania, and brought together partners from Greece, Cyprus, Italy and Malta. Within the ambit of this project, the International Environment Institute was responsible for developing a case study of management planning for candidate Natura 2000 sites in the island of Gozo. The Institute also produced a handbook for coastal managers (Coasts and Conflicts), as well as developing a Training Manual on Coastal Management and Conservation Applications in the Mediterranean Region. Details of these two books are available on the Institute’s publications page.

Further details of the ECONET-COHAST project can be accessed here or by contacting the Institute’s Division of Environmental Management and Planning.
