People for Ecosystem Based Govermnance in Assessing Sustainable Development of Ocean and Coast (PEGASO)aims to build on existing capacities and to develop common novel approaches to support integrated policies for the coastal, marine and maritime realms of the Mediterranean and Black Sea Basins, in ways that are consistent with and relevant to the implementation of the ICZM Protocol for the Mediterranean.
The Protocol does not apply to both regions, but PEGASO will use the model of the existing ICZM Protocol for the Mediterranean and adjust the ICZM platform to the needs of the Black Sea. As article 14 of the Protocol states, there is a requirement to develop new governance models that build on partnerships and participatory processes for the Mediterranean.
The PEGASO project has been designed to assist in achieving this important aim, and to extend it to the Black Sea.
