Mare Nostrum: new cross-border ICZM initiative


The European Union has awarded a multinational Mediterranean preservation project – led by a Technion professor – a grant of 4.3 million euros to develop mechanisms for protecting the basin’s coastline.

The three-year project, called Mare Nostrum, is receiving funding as part of the European Neighborhood and Partnership Instrument’s Cross-Border Cooperation in the Mediterranean Program.

Aiming to bridge the legalinstitutional gap in the implementation of Mediterranean policies on “integrated coastal zone management” (ICZM), Mare Nostrum has 11 partners from Israel, Jordan, Malta, Greece and Spain as well as advisers from Turkey, Germany and Italy.
