    An initial consortium has been developed to deliver a Test project targeting specific objective 2.7. The project aims to develop, test and validate tools that assist valuation and management of coastal ecosystems. Valuation of natural capital and its protection/restoration can benefit multiple sectors including:
    • Improvement in water quality to strengthen tourism offer
    • Enhanced fishery productivity due to healthier habitats
    • Increased carbon sequestration to combat global warming risks.
    Considerable research has been carried out in these areas, but operational tools have not be adequately developed. The EcoVal project will address this gap.

    An embryonic consortium has partners from four countries expressing interest (Italy, Greece, Albania and Bulgaria). We are now looking for some additional partners, one of which must be willing to be Lead Partner. Expressions of interest from Forum members would be welcome.


    Hi. If your project idea involves the use of ICT, we would gladly join your consortium. Please have a look at our web site and drop me an email at
