El grup SeaHealth de l’IEA i la Càtedra Oceans i Salut Humana participen en el projecte europeu Interreg PHAROS4MPAs. El projecte explora com les reserves marines mediterrànies es veuen afectades per diverses activitats com el turisme, la pesca, l'energia eòlica, els creuers i el transport marítim de mercaderies.

El projecte proporciona un conjunt de recomanacions pràctiques destinades a la cogestió d’aquestes activitats amb criteris ambientals, socials i econòmics, aspecte clau en la conservació de les reserves marines a Catalunya i Europa. En concret, l’equip de la UdG, format per investigadors de la Facultat de Ciències i de la Facultat de Turisme, en col·laboració amb la UAB, coordina les activitats “Pesca recreativa”, “Nàutica recreativa” i “Busseig”, tot integrant la pesca artesanal. En el projecte, hi participen fins a vuit institucions d’arreu d’Europa i està liderat per WWF France.

The PHAROS4MPAs project explores how Mediterranean MPAs are affected by activities in the growing Blue Economy, and provides a set of practical recommendations for regional stakeholders on how the environmental impacts of key sectors can be prevented or minimized. Encouraging international collaboration across MPA networks and cooperation between state, industry and other actors, PHAROS4MPAs aims to enhance MPA management effectiveness and improve the conservation of marine ecosystems across the whole of the Mediterranean.

 

PHAROS4MPAs focuses on the following sectors of the Blue Economy:

●     Maritime transport and industrial ports

●     Cruise

●     Tour boats

●     Leisure boating

●     Offshore wind farms

●     Aquaculture

●     Recreational fisheries

●     Scuba diving

●     Small-scale fisheries

The approach of this project is it to put all parties on an equal foot - from MPA managers, to MSP authorities and business sectors representatives - and create the conditions for a sustainable blue economy and a healthy marine environment in and around MPAs.

 

Outcomes include delivering common capitalization baselines, recommendations and policy tools adapted to appropriation by the MedPAN network, MSP authorities, the European Commission, the Barcelona Convention and the various maritime sectors.

 

 

The project, which runs for 18 months from February 2018 to July 2019, is co-funded by Interreg Med, a program funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
