EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian region (EUSAIR)

23-10-2015

The EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR) is the third EU macro-regional strategy, following the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (2009) and the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (2011). On a mandate from the European Council, the EUSAIR was developed jointly by the Commission with the Adriatic-Ionian region countries and stakeholders. The EUSAIR launch conference took place in Brussels on 18 November 2014. The Adriatic and Ionian region faces a number of challenges, such as ...

The EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR) is the third EU macro-regional strategy, following the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (2009) and the EU Strategy for the Danube Region (2011). On a mandate from the European Council, the EUSAIR was developed jointly by the Commission with the Adriatic-Ionian region countries and stakeholders. The EUSAIR launch conference took place in Brussels on 18 November 2014. The Adriatic and Ionian region faces a number of challenges, such as environmental degradation, inefficient transport connections and a lack of strong trans-border cooperation. The EUSAIR aims to tackle these challenges by promoting economic growth and prosperity in the Adriatic-Ionian region through improving its attractiveness, competitiveness and connectivity. It also aims to protect sea, coastal and inland environments and ecosystems. In addition, as the EUSAIR also includes non-EU countries, it should play an important role in promoting the Western Balkans' EU integration. The aims of the strategy will be pursued through four main pillars: 'blue growth', connecting the region, environmental quality and sustainable tourism. Each participating country will be in charge of coordinating and monitoring the implementation of the strategy. As with all EU macro-regional strategies, the EUSAIR does not rely on new funds but rather exploits existing financial instruments, such as the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF), as well as the Instrument for Pre-accession Assistance (IPA) for non-EU countries. Participating countries are also encouraged to seek alternative sources of finance, including private funds.

Maritime Spatial Planning and Integrated Coastal Management: Initial Appraisal of the Commission's Impact Assessment

16-09-2013

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the Commission proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a framework for maritime spatial planning and integrated coastal management (COM (2013) 133), submitted on 12 March 2013. It analyses whether the principal criteria laid down in the Commission’s own Impact Assessment Guidelines, as well as additional factors ...

This note seeks to provide an initial analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the European Commission's Impact Assessment (IA) accompanying the Commission proposal for a Directive of the European Parliament and of the Council establishing a framework for maritime spatial planning and integrated coastal management (COM (2013) 133), submitted on 12 March 2013. It analyses whether the principal criteria laid down in the Commission’s own Impact Assessment Guidelines, as well as additional factors identified by the Parliament in its Impact Assessment Handbook, appear to be met by the IA. It does not attempt to deal with the substance of the proposal.

Blue growth

27-06-2013

In September 2012, the European Commission (EC) adopted a Communication on blue growth which aims to develop the potential of the EU's seas, oceans and coasts to create employment and promote innovation and sustainable growth. A wide variety of marine and maritime economic activities fall within the sphere of this initiative, with five specific sectors identified by the EC as potential drivers of blue growth and, as such, future targets for particular support measures.

Blue growth: Sustainable development of EU marine and coastal sectors

06-05-2013

In September 2012, the European Commission put forward a blue growth strategy for the EU. Elaborated in the context of the EU's Integrated Maritime Policy, the initiative focuses upon the potential of the EU's marine and maritime sectors to contribute to sustainable economic recovery in Europe, and in particular to create new jobs and foster innovation.

Spatial planning for the 'blue economy': Maritime spatial planning and integrated coastal management

02-05-2013

The increasing use of seas and coasts for economic activities, the 'blue economy,' leads to growing and competing demands for maritime space. Maritime spatial planning (MSP) is a relatively new approach to overall planning of the use of seas and coastal areas. In March 2013, the European Commission proposed a Directive that would oblige Member States to make maritime spatial plans and coordinate them with other MS.

Characteristics of Small-Scale Coastal Fisheries in Europe

15-07-2011

The study analyses the structure and economic performance of small-scale coastal fisheries (SSF) in Europe. Eighteen main clusters within SSF are identified and their distribution by NUTS-2 region is presented. The contribution of SSF in terms of income and employment to the economies of the NUTS-2 regions is also assessed. Some potential policy implications of the study’s findings are considered in light of the reform of the Common Fisheries Policy.

Small-scale coastal fisheries in the EU

08-06-2011

80% of the EU fishing fleet is today considered as 'small-scale and coastal fisheries’ (SSCF). In the context of the upcoming Common fisheries policy reform, the European Commission launched a debate on the creation of a specific management regime for SSCF, focusing on social objectives.

Natura 2000 and the Common Fisheries Policy

15-07-2010

This note identifies key issues in the relationship between Natura 2000 and fisheries, describes the Natura 2000 process and its implementation, and different solutions applied to solve management tasks. To date, no Member State has developed fully approved fisheries management plans. Defining principal areas for fisheries, and the development of a consistent management framework of fisheries to incorporate requirements not only from Natura 2000, but also from MSFD and OSPAR/HELCOM strategies, are ...

Tūrisma ietekme uz piekrastes reģioniem Reģionālās attīstības aspekti

15-04-2008

Šajā pētījumā izskatīta struktūrfondu nozīme tūrisma atbalsta pasākumos piekrastes reģionos. Struktūrfondi un it īpaši Eiropas Reģionālās attīstības fonds ir tūrisma MVU un ar tūrismu saistītu pasākumu patiesi svarīgs Eiropas līmeņa finansējuma avots. Kaut gan tūrisms nav augsta prioritāte un skaitliskā izteiksmē tūrismam piešķirtā struktūrfondu daļa ir tikai neliela daļa no kopējām izmaksām, nedrīkst neievērot to ietekmi uz reģionālo attīstību kvalitatīvā izteiksmē, it īpaši tajos reģionos, kuri ...

Šajā pētījumā izskatīta struktūrfondu nozīme tūrisma atbalsta pasākumos piekrastes reģionos. Struktūrfondi un it īpaši Eiropas Reģionālās attīstības fonds ir tūrisma MVU un ar tūrismu saistītu pasākumu patiesi svarīgs Eiropas līmeņa finansējuma avots. Kaut gan tūrisms nav augsta prioritāte un skaitliskā izteiksmē tūrismam piešķirtā struktūrfondu daļa ir tikai neliela daļa no kopējām izmaksām, nedrīkst neievērot to ietekmi uz reģionālo attīstību kvalitatīvā izteiksmē, it īpaši tajos reģionos, kuri ir lielā mērā atkarīgi no tūrisma nozares. Pētījuma rezultāti liecina, ka ievērojama ietekme, it īpaši jaunajās dalībvalstīs, ir atstāta uz iestāžu stiprināšanu, kā piemēram, iegūtās pieredzes tālāk nodošana, plānojot pasākumus tūrisma nozarē. Vēl viens būtisks faktors ir apzinātā nepieciešamība savstarpēji integrēt piekrastes reģionu politiku. Tas ir ļoti svarīgi it īpaši attiecībā uz tūrisma projektu vides ilgtspējības aspektiem. Īstenībā visi politikas noteicēji labi zina, ka tādas strauji augošas nozares kā tūrisma (it īpaši masu tūrisma) ilgtspējība piekrastes reģionos būs galvenā nākotnes problēma
