En ce début du nouvel an 2015, et après l’honorable succès du premier numéro de notre revue technique, professionnelle, méditerranéenne et semestrielle intitulée littoral et mer, c’est avec un immense plaisir que l’Association Tunisienne de l’Ingénierie Côtière, Portuaire et Maritime (A.T.I.M.) partage avec ces lecteurs, ce deuxième numéro, qui présente un nouveau recueil de papiers techniques multidisciplinaires rédigés par des professionnels du domaine, en vue de dévoiler une partie des ressources propres, des modes de gestion intégrée et des imbrications relatifs à ces espaces fragiles, stratégiques, propices et privilégiés. Aussi, nous invitons ceux qui souhaitent partager des informations capitales, leurs expériences et leur savoir faire avec la communauté littorale et marine en méditerranée à contribuer par des articles dans les prochains numéros.

Originally posted on Coastal & MarinE-News:

A milestone resolution recognizing the contribution of sustainable tourism to poverty eradication, community development and the protection of biodiversity has been adopted by consensus by the United Nations General Assembly.

Emphasizing the need to optimize the economic, social, cultural and environmental benefits stemming from sustainable tourism, particularly in developing countries, the resolution entitled “Promotion of sustainable tourism, including ecotourism, for poverty eradication and environment protection” calls upon the UN System to promote sustainable tourism as an instrument that can contribute to achieving the Millennium Development Goals.

The resolution, significantly broader in scope than previous ones on the subject, builds on a 2012 UN resolution on ecotourism and draws on a report prepared by UNWTO. In line with UNWTO recommendations, it underlines the importance of appropriate national policies, guidelines and regulations for promoting sustainable tourism, including ecotourism, and encourages UN Member States and regional and international financial institutions to support…

Med-IAMER: Stakeholders consultation process – Adriatic-Ionian ecoregion

Deadline : 28 February 2015This survey is part of the stakeholders’ consultation process led by Plan Bleu in the framework of Med-IAMER project. Med-IAMER proposes an integrated environmental status assessment to mitigate environmental risks to be addressed at trans-boundary scale in the Mediterranean Sea. The approach draws on the main pressures and the conservation level in the Western Mediterranean and the Adriatic-Ionian ecoregions to identify spatial hotspots of environmental pressures. (More information: http://www.medmaritimeprojects.eu/section/med-iamer)

Through this survey, we would like your feedback and comments on Med-IAMER preliminary results in the Adriatic-Ionian Basin, presented via factsheets, in order to improve the knowledge on the:
• major drivers and pressures identified in the Adriatic-Ionian region;
• data/indicators needs and gaps;
• most relevant policies and governance arrangements in influencing the level of pressure on resources.

In the era of plastic and global environmental issues, when large garbage patches have been observed in the main oceanic basins, this work is the first attempt to explore the possibility that similar permanent accumulation structures may exist in the Mediterranean Sea. The questions addressed in this work are: can the general circulation, with its sub-basins scale gyres and mesoscale instabilities, foster the concentration of floating items in some regions? Where are the more likely coastal zones impacted from open ocean sources?

Multi-annual simulations of advected surface passive debris depict the Tyrrhenian Sea, the north-western Mediterranean sub-basin and the Gulf of Sirte as possible retention areas. The western Mediterranean coasts present very low coastal impact, while the coastal strip from Tunisia to Syria appears as the favourite destination. No permanent structure able to retain floating items in the…

Font: Generalitat de Catalunya

El Departament d’Agricultura, Ramaderia, Pesca, Alimentació i Medi Natural (DAAM) ha actualitzat, en el seu web, la delimitació de les praderies de fanerògames marines del litoral català.
La delimitació publicada respon a l’objectiu de donar a conèixer les zones on, en base al coneixement actual, es poden trobar praderies de qualsevol de les espècies de fanerògames marines presents en el nostre litoral (Posidònia, Cimodocea o Zostera).
Per tal de poder fer aquesta delimitació la Direcció General de Pesca i Afers Marítims del Departament va abordar la recopilació de treballs i estudis fets en els darrers anys, facilitats per administracions, empreses i altres organismes, que han col·laborat de forma desinteressada en el projecte.
