The good practices on the MPAs governance

A tool developed to collect experiences of the 10 pilot sites shared through the online open platform CoastingWiki.

The tool aimed at further expand the wikisource of good practices database on coastal governance already developed by the Interreg Med Project Coasting by adding a section related to MPA governance. TUNE UP integrated the wikisource with PP’s experiences related to the MPA Contracts implementation to guarantee a wide transferring and dissemination of the project’s results and the governance process. FAMP (COASTING Lead Partner) has coordinated the activity. In the framework of this activity, each PP uploaded a good practice related to its MPA Contract experience on a section of the already existing Coasting wikisource.





This site is funded through the Interreg Med Coasting Project and managed by Sapienza University of Rome – PDTA Department (IT).

The CoastingWiki has been developed by the COASTING partnership as a permanent observatory for sharing knowledge and promoting good practices on coastal governance. The COASTING partnership is made possible with the contribution of the Interreg Med financial instrument of the European Community (co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund).

COASTING is a capitalisation project based on the ICZM (Integrated Coastal Zone Management) principles application, aiming at enhancing the effectiveness of a multilevel governance tool like Coast Contract (Contract de Baie), transferring a shared methodology mostly centred on the stakeholders’ involvement, and focusing tools and actions more deeply on the tourism sector sustainability and qualification. In accordance with the ICZM protocol, COASTING aims to apply its principles to enhance qualification and use of natural resources, to create social accountability through a participation process so to develop a coherent framework for coastal recovery and management, increasing coordination for actions related to sustainable and responsible coastal and maritime tourism in the MED area. The capitalisation process aims to build the coherent methodology and framework for institutional uptake of procedures and policies related to coastal governance in the partner’s regions and in the EU.
