The updated Action Plan of the Bologna Charter initiative
From 2007-2013 > through 2014-2020 > towards 2021-2027, a lot we did together, a lot is still to do for our coasts, all around the Mediterranean.
After the overall draft of the updated version completed in June 2019, the further confrontation and contributions coming in this last period of consultation, we have the pleasure to announce the issue the new BC Joint Action Plan. It looks towards the forthcoming challenges and to the next ERDF programming period:
- updating and re-launching on the framework of Actions and the implementation activities, after 4 years from its first issue, and presentation within the Med Capitalisation Final Event by the Committee of the Regions (CoR) in Brussels, in March 2015,
- referring on the state-of-art of JAP implementation and its impact on policies through cooperation projects during these last years,
- recalling on new adhesions and extension of the BC cooperation space in the Mediterranean, new opportunities emerged, initiatives created in the Med area, South and East included,
- introducing a new comprehensive strategy for assisting adaptation to climate change in the Mediterranean coastal areas (new Annex 5) responding the expectations indicated for the BC initiative by the WestMed Initiative Framework for Action.
The new BC-JAP is available on the Bolognacharter.eu website.
