In the framework of the COP 21 of Barcelona Convention (Naples, Italy, 2-5 December 2019), Plan Bleu co-organized with Eco-union, IUCN-Med, Global Footprint Network and the French Ministry for Ecological and Solidarity Transition, a side-event on "Sustainable Coastal and Maritime Tourism to Tackle Environmental and Development Challenges in the Mediterranean Region".

The side-event that was held on Tuesday 3rd of December, 18h-19h, at Sala Sirena, Castel dell’Ovo in Naples, spotlighted recent outcomes, tools, and lessons learned around the topic of Mediterranean maritime and coastal sustainable tourism.

This event shared novel approaches and lessons related to sustainable blue tourism and its role in supporting biodiversity conservation and territorial development around the Mediterranean coast. It also highlighted recent opportunities and gaps identified in governance, policy-making, impact monitoring and management, while sharing innovative perspectives on how recent achievements can be capitalized and scaled to broader Mediterranean context in the framework of the Barcelona Convention and other multilateral or voluntary environmental agreements and commitments at global, regional, national or local scale.

Plan Bleu presented in particular key findings from the BlueBoatsMed (supported by the European Union through a BlueMed Start-Up action and ADEME) and BleuTourMed (supported by the EU through the Interreg MED programme) projects.
