International Summer Course on Coastal Zone Management in the Atlantic Coast

Location: Ponta Delgada (Azores)
Event Type: Training Course
Event Date: 2004-08-23    
End Date: 2004-08-28

Event Description:
Coastal zones are facing serious problems of habitat destruction, water contamination, coastal erosion and resource depletion. Coastal zones also suffer from serious socio-economic and cultural problems, such as weakening of the social fabric, marginalization, unemployment and destruction of property by erosion. Given the coast’s critical value and its potential, these problems must be solved. Having an European dimension, the response must include action at the European level. Since 1996, the European Commission has been working to identify and promote measures to remedy this deterioration and to improve the overall situation in our coastal zones. The Commission’s Demonstration Programme on Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) has looked at the many inter-related
biological, physical and human problems presently facing these zones. There is no simple, legislative solution to these complex problems. An integrated, participative territorial approach is therefore required to ensure that the management of Europe’s coastal zones is environmentally and economically sustainable, as well as socially equitable and cohesive.This course main goal is to promote international communication and working relations between managers, researchers, students and technicians, in an integrated approach to Coastal Zone Management.
