MEDCOAST 99 - EMECS 99 JOINT CONFERENCE

09-13  November 1999, Antalya, Turkey

 

THE FOURTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

ON THE MEDITERRANEAN COASTAL ENVIRONMENT, MEDCOAST 99

 

THE FOURTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

ON THE ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT OF ENCLOSED COASTAL SEAS, EMECS 99

 

 

 

WELCOME TO THE JOINT CONFERENCE

The enclosed coastal seas of the world are beset by serious problems, resulting from rapid development of many improper use patterns and insufficient levels of protection. For this reason, proper coastal management which aims to achieve sustainable uses of coastal and sea resources, their protection, and regeneration in certain cases, is very strongly needed. This need has been recognized for sometime at various levels and several initiatives have been launched.  MEDCOAST and EMECS are two examples of such initiatives.

 

The MEDCOAST initiative, which was started with the First International Conference on the Mediterranean Coastal Environment, MEDCOAST 93, 2-5 November 1993, Antalya, Turkey, aims to contribute to coastal and marine conservation in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, through improved integrated coastal management practices.  Over the following three years, MEDCOAST has achieved a respectable reputation through its activities in three directions.  These are; a) MEDCOAST conference series and scientific workshops; b) Human resources development; c) Collaborated research.  MEDCOAST has already organized three major international conferences (MEDCOAST 93, Antalya, Turkey; MEDCOAST 95, Tarragona, Spain; and MEDCOAST 97, Qawra, Malta), and an international workshop (International Workshop on the State-of-the-Art of ICZM in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, 2-5 November 1996, Sarigerme, Turkey). These scientific meetings produced several volumes of conference and workshop proceeding, special MEDCOAST issues of Journal of Ocean and Coastal Management (JOCM) and Journal of Coastal Conservation (JCC), and very important conclusions and recommendations.

 

A few years earlier than MEDCOAST, a similar initiative, aiming more or less the same goals as MEDCOAST, but at the global scale, was launched in Japan with the International Conference on Environmental Management and Appropriate Use of Enclosed Coastal Seas, EMECS 90, 3-6 August 1990, Kobe, Japan.  The proceedings of this very successful conference were published as a special volume of Marine Pollution Bulletin.  Since then, there has been organized two more very successful EMECS conferences; EMECS 93 in Baltimore, Maryland, USA and EMECS 97 as a joint conference with the Stockholm Water Symposium in Stockholm, Sweden.

 

MEDCOAST 99 - EMECS 99 Joint Conference happens to be the fourth conference in both series.  It is envisaged that the Joint Conference with its theme: Land - Ocean Interactions: Managing Coastal Ecosystems will bring many resourceful people from all around the world.  It will provide an exciting and stimulating environment for exchanging new ideas and starting new collaborations.  The presentations in oral and poster sessions, and in the special workshops will provide a wealth of high quality information.

 

MEDCOAST and EMECS look forward to a major conference in the lovely Mediterranean town of Antalya on the shores of the Turkish Riviera, enjoying the long history of ancient Mediterranean culture and civilization, and experiencing a wide range of coastal and sea management issues. Anyone, who is concerned with the integrated management of enclosed coastal seas in general, and the Mediterranean and the Black Sea in particular, is warmly welcomed to participate and to contribute...
