The project will provide an impulse to the growth of local communities, offering concrete support for orienting the directions and possible actions to implement the Blue Economy by supporting economic diversification and the creation of new jobs in the territories.
The operational tool considered for the construction of strategic guidelines and the experimentation of “pilot actions” is the Coast Agreements, which derives from the traditional model of the “River Agreement”, and is calibrated on the specificity and multiplicity of interests, territorial players and resources that characterize a coastal system. The reference best practice is the Costa Veneta Agreement, the first experience in Italy launched in 2016 on the entire regional coast (in the coastal areas between the mouth of the Tagliamento river and the Po Delta) to facilitate the implementation of Community, national and regional policies on environmental protection, hydraulic defence, adaptation to the effects of climate change and in general the integrated management of territories at the land-sea interface, together with the enhancement and promotion of local development through conscious, responsible, operational and continuous cooperation.
The application of the Coast Agreement will help to improve governance of the local network with positive effects on the Blue Economy.
The BLUE COAST AGREEMENTS 2030 project proposal was developed by the FLAG GAC Chioggia Delta del Po starting from the needs recognized and shared with the FLAGs of the partnership, as part of the various laboratory activities carried out both locally, through the respective Local Development Strategies (SSL), and at national and international level in the meetings supported by the National Network of FLAGs and by FARNET.
