Multi-Regional Workshop on Legal-regulatory frameworks for coastal land management in Mediterranean countries – Union for the Mediterranean – UfM
Jun 03 2023
15-16 June 2023, Menorca, Spain – The TAIEX “Multi-Regional Workshop on Legal-regulatory frameworks for coastal land management in Mediterranean countries” will address the need to improve the sustainable management of coastal zones of Mediterranean countries through effective legal and regulatory land management instruments, to tackle coastal and marine degradation and climate change effects while limiting the linear extension of urban development.
Mediterranean countries participating in the workshop will benefit from cross-national learning towards the adoption of more effective policy and legal-regulatory instruments necessary to meet the challenges of coastal sustainability and resilience in the face of climate change. The workshop also aims to launch a process that could conclude with a comparative analysis/repository of coastal land planning governance models and instruments across the region and a set of recommendations. The target audience are experts on land-use planning, planning law, environmental law and planning governance dealing with urban legal-regulatory instruments.
Participants are expected to actively contribute to the discussion by making references to the planning bodies dedicated to coastal planning, dedicated plans or other instruments for coastal areas or special planning regulations for the land beyond the setback zone in their respective countries. Zooming out of their national realities will contribute to refocusing their priorities and getting inspired by the results or reflections of others.
The workshop is organised by TAIEX in co-operation with the UfM, DG NEAR, DG ENV, UNEP-MAP, UN-Habitat, IUCN.
Beneficiaries: Albania, Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Israel, Italy, Lebanon, Malta, Montenegro, Morocco, Palestine, Slovenia, Spain, Tunisia, Türkiye.
