MANG    Giving impetus to a collective movement in favour of the preservation of coastal wetlands in EU overseas territories

Brief Description:
The project attempted to addresses the associated shortage of management methods and tools needed to improve coastal wetland conservation, and thus positively impacted all the wetlands in the European ORs (Outermost Regions) and OCTs (Overseas Countries and Territories). These objectives will be achieved through four activities: 1. establishing and promoting a method for site assessment; 2. specifying a participatory and transversal method for coastal wetland management; 3. promoting the adoption of the method; and 4. getting public and private stakeholders involved. The project developed a site assessment method, and communicate it to the stakeholders involved in management and conservation, defined a participative methodology for managing wetlands, communicated these working methodologies to all wetland managers, and facilitate their adoption, and involved the various target groups concerned for better conservation of wetlands. It was developed undet ther BEST 2 (Voluntary scheme for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in Territories of European Overseas) Initiative.

El proyecto intento abordar la escasez asociada de métodos y herramientas de gestión necesarios para mejorar la conservación de los humedales costeros y, por lo tanto, impactarndo positivamente en todos los humedales de las RUP europeas (regiones ultraperiféricas) y PTU (países y territorios de ultramar). Estos objetivos se lograron a través de cuatro actividades: 1. establecer y promover un método para la evaluación del sitio; 2. especificar un método participativo y transversal para el manejo de los humedales costeros; 3. promover la adopción del método; y 4. involucrar a las partes interesadas públicas y privadas. El proyecto desarrolló un método de evaluación de sitios y lo comunicó a las partes interesadas involucradas en el manejo y la conservación, definió una metodología participativa para el manejo de los humedales, comunicó estas metodologías de trabajo a todos los administradores de humedales y facilitó su adopción, e involucró a los diversos grupos objetivo interesados ​​en mejor conservación de los humedales. Se desarrollo bajo la Iniciativa BEST.
