The Autonomous Region of Sardinia has singed the Bologna Charter, by its Regional Minister Donatella Spano, within the event of the MAREGOT project “Protection and Management of the coasts” held on the 17th May in Cagliari.
Minister Spano recalled the Bologna Charter as important initiative that reinforces the role of the Mediterranean regions on European maritime and coastal policies, stimulating collaboration with local authorities, universities and other stakeholders. “With its over 2 thousand kilometers of coastline Sardinia boasts a natural heritage of enormous value that we are also protecting from the risk of erosion, even if it is among the regions in better health on this front“, underlined the Ms. Spano regional Minister for Environment Protection.
She recalled also that the Sardinia Region is involved in these issues also within the National Board on Coastal Erosion coordinated by the Italian Ministry of Environment and Sea Protection and by ISPRA.
“Among the various initiatives promoted by the Charter – concluded Donatella Spano – the quantitative detection of the erosion phenomenon and the risk of marine ingression along the Mediterranean coasts is significant, also in relation to the Floods Directive. It is a necessary analysis to implement a concrete policy of adaptation to the natural and anthropic risks along coastal areas, thus favouring the redevelopment of coastal territories for a sustainable growth“.
