MEDCOAST 07
THE EIGHTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 
ON THE MEDITERRANEAN COASTAL ENVIRONMENT

13-17 November 2007, Alexandria, Egypt

 

WELCOME

Since the first conference organized in Antalya, Turkey during 2-5 November 1993, eight events of the MEDCOAST’s "Mediterranean Coastal Environment" conference series have made this series a major international scientific and environmental meeting, focusing on the management of the coastal and sea areas in general and of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea in particular. It has become one of the most regularly organized conferences in its field, producing valuable outcomes that include 20 volumes of proceedings adding up to nearly 15 000 pages and five special issues of two leading coastal management journals. These bi-annual conferences, together with three thematic workshops, one special conference and twelve events of two series of training programs, have created a steadily growing group of MEDCOAST people, among which various significant collaboration initiatives have developed.

The idea of MEDCOAST for enhancing collaboration among various actors to produce means and products contributing to better management of the coastal and sea areas of the Mediterranean and the Black Sea is already 16 years old. Through invaluable, voluntary contributions of many friends over this period, MEDCOAST has achieved the status of a valued actor in the field of integrated coastal management, honoured by important international awards and recognitions. We are especially proud to have produced the ever-growing “MEDCOAST family” of people who has similar concerns for the Mediterranean and the Black Sea.

The year of 2007 will have a special place in the history of MEDCOAST due to formal establishment of the Mediterranean Coastal Foundation (or the MEDCOAST Foundation as we shall often call it)! We now enter a new challenging period for becoming a long lasting Mediterranean/Black Sea institution, enriching our traditional activities and involving greater number of experts and researchers from all around the world, especially from the Mediterranean and the Black Sea countries as key people to lead new MEDCOAST initiatives.

MEDCOAST conferences have always thrived for high levels of scientific and professional qualities. Response to the eighth conference (over 300 abstracts were submitted) was very satisfactory from all around the Mediterranean and the Black Sea despite the relatively short time that we had for its organization. We expect to have another successful event in the magnificent setting offered by Alexandria, enhanced by the rich Egyptian culture and hospitality! Scientists, experts, managers, planners, policy makers, resource developers, users and conservationists from both the Mediterranean and the Black Sea countries, or from outside the basins, are cordially invited to participate!
