MEDCOASTLAND was an EU-funded thematic network project aimed at coordinating and promoting land conservation management to combat land degradation for the sustainable use of natural resources in the Mediterranean coastal zones. The project had the overall objective of contributing to sustainable development, planning and management of natural resources in Mediterranean coastal areas, with particular regard to land and soil degradation and conservation management.

The specific targets achieved by this project include establishing a Mediterranean-wide permanent communication structure between stakeholders in the field of combating land degradation in the Southern Mediterranean, linking of research activities to the region’s needs and concerns, improving access to and dissemination of relevant information, and providing a framework to assist regional planning and EU-funding in Mediterranean coastal areas. Project activities were organised into seven thematic work packages and included a series of five workshops and a conference, as well as a web-forum, an electronic newsletter, several video CD ROMs and the publication by CIHEAM of a number of volumes of proceedings.

Further information is available at the project website or by contacting the Division of Rural Sciences and Food Systems.
