Technical report on the update of the Climagine methodology for its upcoming application in the GEF MedProgramme

The “Imagine” approach was developed by Plan Bleu to address sustainable coastal zone management needs in the Mediterranean and to ensure the participation of stakeholders in coastal planning. “Climagine” offered an adaptation of “Imagine” to addresses the specific challenges of climate change and variability in coastal zones.

Within the framework of the MedPartnership sister project “Integration of climate variability and change into national strategies for the implementation of the ICZM Protocol in the Mediterranean” (Climvar), Climagine was tested in two pilot zones: Šibenik-Knin County in Croatia and the Kerkennah archipelago in Tunisia. Building on the lessons learned from the Kerkennah archipelago case, this note aims to provide useful information for the foreseen implementation of Climagine in the framework of the GEF MedProgramme (2021-2025), particularly for the elaboration of two ICZM plans in the Tangiers-Tetouan-Al Hoceima region (Morocco) and in Kotor Bay (Montenegro) and the elaboration of two national ICZM strategies in Egypt and Lebanon.
