In Mare Nostrum, a Mediterranean wide project focused on coastal planning and management, IRMCo takes the lead role in developing a public participatory GIS (PPGIS) approach, with the aim of including local communities in decision-making on coastal issues. To aid this process we are developing a practical guide and training programme for PPGIS in the different case study areas.
We are also contributing to the research on identifying institutional-legal implementation gaps in coastal planning and management in the Maltese Islands, with a focus on the Grand Harbour area.
