2.Connected project to support ETC-LUSI EEA work
3. Cooperation elements with relevant Mediterranean organization and observatories
1.1 Development of ICZM indicators

Sustainability of tourism
-Coastal tourism/cruisers maritime activity
At European scale, coastal communities have a slightly lower population with higher
Despite possible threats from sea level rise and the permanent ecological problems of the lagoon due to agriculture eutrophicating surpluses, urban and infrastructures development has continued in the province of Venice.

Report on available existing data sets (national, international DB) (2008-2009)
Example: erosion patterns
Data is available, but the time series are so old and not “significant” European wide, National and Regional Governments have much better information on erosion patters.

2. The FP7 PEGASO project on Mediterranean and Black Sea
To construct an ICZM governance platform, consistent with the aims of article 14 of the ICZM protocol for the Mediterranean.
The ICZM Governance Platform will enable the science and end user communitiesto share data and information and explicit their needs for tools, so as to build a common understanding on priority issues affecting the coastal zones of the two regional seas.
The platform is formed by the PEGASO partners, nine test fields (the CASES) with their stakeholders and the end-users Committee.
To build a spatial data infrastructure (SDI) for the Mediterranean and Black Seas.
The ICZM Platform will be supported by the development and implementation of an SDI:
To organize local geonodes andstandardize spatial data to support information sharing on an interactive visor, and to disseminate all results of the project.
The Spatial Data Infrastructure willshare spatial data in an interactive way:
PEGASO will refine and further develop efficient and easy to use tools for making sustainability assessments in the coastal zone.

Building on what we have performed with CLC
Colaboration with the Med Wetland Observatory
New spatial indicators
Models based on image texture and primary productivity have been applied for explaining up to 70 % of the variability in species richness (of birds - St-Louis et al, 2006; of birds and butterflies - Seto et al, 2003; of vascular plants – Griffiths and Lee, 2000)
A test was performed for the region of Doñana national park, on the basis of vegetation index (NDVI) derived from Landsat TM images, following three steps:
With the Marine Directive, countries will have to build a sea bed data base.
populating ATLAS of coast and sea (ICAN network)
The shipping routes, the anchorage areas, the nature protection areas (Natura 2000, RAMSAR sites and World heritage), the gas and oil exploitations & connecting pipelines, the fi shing areas and telecom cables were mapped.

TESTING THE TOOLS wetlands of the Mediterranean and Black Sea
The tools will be tested and validated in 9 sites (CASES) and by the ICZM Platform, using a multi-scale approach for integrated regional assessment.
At different scales, bringing national, regional with local
To support an integrated regional assessment for the Mediterranean and Black Sea coastal and maritime areas, agreed with the governance platform.
To establish and strengthen mechanisms for networking and capacity development so as to promote knowledge transfer and the continued use of the project outputs.
