Coast Day celebrates its 11th anniversary and raises the challenge for a sustainable use of coastal resources. Created in 2008 to promote the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) campaign, coordinated by the United Nations PAP/RAC agency and promoted by the European Union's SMAP programme and the World Bank's METAP project, the event aims to raise awareness among the people of the Mediterranean countries of the value of the coasts, their conservation and protection for sustainable development.
