CLIMAGINE Workshop IV Kotor Bay Coastal Management Plan GEF MedProgramme, Child Project 2.1

Coastal planning in Kotor Bay (Boka Kotorska), Montenegro is currently being supported through the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) MedProgramme: Enhancing Environmental Security, implemented by the UNEP Mediterranean Action Plan (UNEP/MAP). One of the main goals of the MedProgramme’s Child Project 2.1 is to drive the implementation of the Protocol on Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM Protocol) among Mediterranean countries, notably to address the impacts of climate change and economic activities on coastal hotspots, while seeking to enhance sustainable living conditions for the coastal populations concerned.

The fourth and final Climagine workshop engaged national and local stakeholders to discuss and validate the Sustainability Indicators (SI) and associated values provided by the sectoral experts of the Boka Kotorska CMP, which will be used to track and evaluate the area’s trajectories in environmental and socioeconomic erms, offering insights into the Kotor Bay’s state by 2030 and beyond. In addition, Plan Bleu presented the participants with an analysis of the sustainability thresholds for each SI that had been identified and validated during the preceding workshops, and subsequently associated with a priority sector. Participants also discussed alternative, more sustainable development scenarios for the Bay based on the latter, so as to make informed decisions that will protect its ecological integrity and biodiversity, while implementing sustainable and inclusive economic activities that will safeguard the Bay’s cultural heritage and the wellbeing of its local communities.
