Harbours, navigation basins and marine spatial planning
The theme "harbours and navigation basins ", will help the partners address issues related to the marine planning. The PAC Var Steering Committee has therefore decided to dedicate a working group to this theme.
The perimeter of the project is the coastal territory of the Var County. This choice is a result of the feasibility study, which recommended this area, and was justified by the proactive policy at the Var County level, including the completion of a County’s Scheme for the Sea and the coastline (Schéma départemental de la mer et du littoral - SDML). The SDML is the base for the PAC Var project.
The SDML was achieved in 2010, In the last five years many changes might have occurred in the County regarding the main issues identified in the SDML.
The objective is to establish a shared diagnosis of the issues raised by the SDML; assess their degree of successful resolution or not through the actions planned, and advancement; analysing potential new issues and update available data accordingly.
This group will meet two times to prepare the Forum and a third time to debrief and identify a possible follow.
Workshop 1 has built an assessment of the SDML on the harbours and navigation basins themes, and initiate the harvest of updated data and help identify key current issues.
