2 Content About MAP CAMP programme CAMP Slovenia Project background CAMP Slovenia Project area CAMP Slovenia Poject area problems CAMP Slovenia project - objectives CAMP Slovenia project - Institutional arrangements an staffing CAMP Slovenia project - horizontal and individual projects Objectives, outputs; Further steps

3 MAP CAMP programme a programme for sustainable coastal management integrates environmental concerns into development planning oriented at practical environmental, development and management problems at local and national levels in Mediterranean coastal areas. to be integrated in the process of formulation and implementation of national and regional development policies

4 MAP CAMP programme - a multi-level nature: a) local level solving priority environment and development related problems in selected areas; b) national level contributing to the formulation and implementation of national policies and strategies testing methodologies and procedures under national and local conditions; c) regional level disseminating experience, contributing to regional policies and strategies; d) wider international level offering results, methodologies and procedures to other regions (within UNEP's Regional Seas Programme).

5 CAMP Slovenia Project background Montpellier, 1996, Extraordinary Meeting of the Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention, approved the decision to carry out a CAMP Project for Slovenia, Ljubljana, 2003, Agreement was signed, 2004, Start of the project; 2006, End of the implementation phase,

6 CAMP Slovenia Project area CAMP Slovenia area is being implemented in the South Primorska planning region: Municipalities: Koper, Izola, Piran, Sezana, Hrpelje-Kozina, Divaca, Komen, Ilirska Bistrica; Surface: 1,524 km2, Population: 118,208 (2001).

GDP per capita: 103.5% of the Slovene average (2001), The economic structure: service sector is prevailing, industry and agriculture economically less important;

7 South Primorska planning region

8 CAMP Slovenia area: problems related to sustainable development conflicts between the environment/spatial planning and development; pressures to coastal strip and its assets/urban, tourism development patterns; degradation of cultural heritage, landscape; unsustainable mobility/transport pattern; development conflicts in nature protected areas; insufficient and disproportionate infrastructure for environmental protection ; pressures on the environment (the sea, waters, air, nature, cultural heritage).

9 CAMP Slovenia project: objectives sustainable spatial development on South Primorska regonal level, by spatial integration of urban, infrastructure, landscape development; sustainable spatial development of coastal strip, by coordinated municipal spatial planning; enhancing sustainable character of tourism development; nature protection by upgrading management of nature protected areas, water resources protection by upgrading municipal investment programming; more efficient protection of the marine environment, by provision of a tool for developing proper spill response strategies and tactics

10 CAMP Slovenia project: objectives to upgrade of institutions for sustainable development and management at the regional level; to contribute to the development of human capacities at the regional and national levels; to raise the environmental and sustainable development awareness an the regional level; to reinforce public participation in development planning and management process; to apply methodologies, tools and practices of sustainable development (Strategic Environmental Impact Assessment and Scenario Planning); to generate project results to be used in posproject period; to develop planning, management and implementation approaches at regional and municipal levels, applicable to other areas.

11 CAMP Slovenia project - Institutional arrangements an staffing MAP component: the Co-ordinating Unit of MAP acts as the overall Project Coordinator, PAP/RAC as the MAP Project Implementing Centre, BP/RAC supports Systemic and Prospective sustainability analysis, REMPEC supports sensitivity maps (Regional Spatial Information System) SPA/RAC supports Management of protected areas; PAP/RAC supports Co-ordination, integration and projects implementation; MAP Project Co-ordinator,
