TThis workshop will present the FP7 Project PEGASO on coastal and marine sustainable management and planning in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea to support the Integrated Coastal Zone Management Protocol. The PEGASO project has been designed to bring the science and end-users communities relevant to the Mediterranean and Black Sea Basins together, to develop collaboratively a robust, relevant and easy to use set of sustainability tools. They will be tested and refined at a range of spatial scales, through work across the region and at a number of sites. The common understandings of the potentials and limitations of these tools will be shared between communities, and the information used to identify present and future priorities for developing a consensual approach to the design of policy and management responses. The key outcome of the project will be the building of new, joint ICZM governance mechanisms, able to better support the implementation of existing and future policies affecting both the Mediterranean and the Black Seas.
