Mediterranean Coast Day

The Priority Actions Programme Regional Activity Centre (PAP/RAC) is organising the Mediterranean Coast Day 2018 in Split, Croatia on September 25 .

This event, celebrated annually since 2007, brings together all the countries of the Mediterranean to raise awareness of the importance of the coast as a natural, cultural and economic resource, and the risks it currently faces. It will bring together Mediterranean governmental representatives, UN Environment/MAP representatives, diplomatic corps and representatives of international organisations in Croatia, as well as local authorities, partner NGOs and associations.

The main theme of this year’s event will be “PAP/RAC’s 40th birthday” or, better to say, 40 years of collaboration of the Mediterranean countries on securing healthy, productive, diverse, distinctive, attractive and resilient Mediterranean coastal zone. It will be accompanied by public events and several back-to-back technical meetings.
