Triton project focuses on the necessity to reduce the consequences of coastal erosion and to establish appropriate environmental control systems.
The Apulian and Western Greece coastlines are facing significant erosion impacts due to natural causes (extended fetches, stormy winds, high waves and strong currents) and man-induced causes (such as urban expansion, touristic development and single-purpose coastal and/or watershed infrastructures).
Thanks to Triton project, a model of Integrated Coastal Management Zone (ICZM) between Puglia and Western Greece will be developed in order to establish decision support tools for protection of coastal areas and reduce the consequences of coastal erosion due to natural causes, such as stormy winds, high waves and strong currents, and human induced causes such as urban expansion, touristic development and infrastructures.
Main results of the project will be a toolkit of policy instruments for policy makers, a web-based participatory GIS/SIT tool empowering inhabitants and visitors to communicate effectively with the local and regional authorities, a set of shared indicators and decision support tools for the operational mapping and monitoring of coastal erosion risk.
Puglia Region is the lead beneficiary of this project in cooperation with the Italian Euro-Mediterranean Center for Climate Change and three Greek partners, the Region of Western Greece, the Network of European Cities for Sustainable Development, and the University of Patras.
Bioengineering interventions, including beach nourishment, restoration of dune lines and dredging of the fishing port, to mitigate the erosion effects and preserve the landscape of one of the most appreciated and naturalistically relevant stretches of the Apulian coast. This is the experience...
