Presentations and pictures are now available from the CO-EVOLVE Dissemination Event - 'Promoting the co-evolution of human activities and natural systems in MED touristic coastal areas'.
CO-EVOLVE's Dissemination event took place in Barcelona on 5 June, in the margins of the Mediterranean Sustainable Tourism Convention 2019 organised by the Interreg MED Sustainable Tourism Community.
This meeting was the occasion to draw general conclusions from CO-EVOLVE's operational part i.e. Studying and Testing phases: Mapping of the threats and enabling factors to Sustainable Tourism; Toolkit to assess the sustainability of tourist destinations in the Mediterranean; Strategic planning at pilot areas level; Pilot actions, etc. (see CO-EVOLVE's deliverables).
CO-EVOLVE's methodology is now fully ready to be adapted and transferred to other territories, which is the main aim of the project's transferring phase, which started a few weeks ago and will run until the end of the project (October 2019);
CO-EVOLVE partners rely on this critical phase to guarantee the long-term impact of the project's activities, results and replication at local and regional scales, as well as at Mediterranean level.
Several opportunities to ensure the extension of CO-EVOLVE's methodology to other territories in the Mediterranean are undergoing:
- Co-Evolve4BG (ENI CBC MED) and MedCoast4BG (UfM labelled project), in the Southern and Eastern parts of the Mediterranean (in particular Tunisia, Lebanon, Morocco and Montenegro)
- TOURIMPACT4BG (Interreg IPA CBC Italy-Albania-Montenegro)
- TAIEX (Morocco).
