CASCADE Project Launched

The kickoff meeting of CASCADE, acronym of 'CoAStal and marine waters integrated monitoring systems for ecosystems proteCtion AnD management', has taken place online on Friday, June 26 and Tuesday, June 30.

Coordinated by Apulia Region, the project is funded by the Italy-Croatia Interreg Cooperation Programme and involves other 19 partners from the two Adriatic countries, including public institutions (Regions/Counties, Agencies, coastal Municipalities), universities and research centers, and environmental no profit organizations.

During three years, CASCADE will develop a set of concerted and coordinated actions that are aimed to enhance the knowledge, to evaluate the quality and to assess the vulnerability of inland, coastal and marine ecosystems in Italy and Croatia with the final objective to restore endangered species and to support integrated management.

The project will consolidate long-lasting research capabilities in the field through a concrete dialogue with stakeholders and the participation of Agencies, research centres and universities in order to enhance inland, coastal and marine knowledge. Such shared information and monitoring protocols are essential for supporting concrete actions dealing with environmental vulnerability, fragmentation and safeguarding of ecosystem services at cross-border level.
