MEDCORE

MEDCORE: From river catchment areas to the sea – an integrated and comparative approach to the ecology of Mediterranean coastal zones for sustainable management

EU Fifth Framework Programme, ICA3-CT2002-10003, 2002-2004

The Medcore project focused on selected coastal areas related to fluvial systems across the Mediterranean. The project’s approach was to evaluate coastal sites within their broader context, considering large spatial scales spanning from inland watersheds to the sea. The project demonstrated the need to consider and manage beaches as open systems, dependent on processes occurring further afield. The Medcore project also identified trends, impacts and early warning indicators relating to changes in environmental quality. Linkages between different environmental compartments were identified, and the need to integrate such different aspects was highlighted in research conclusions.

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