Managing the input of the Commission on the Protection of the Black Sea Against Pollution (the Black Sea Commission or BSC) into the PEGASO project via BSC Permanent Secretariat and its subsidiary ICZM Advisory Group by participating in the implementation of following:

Development of ICZM Guidelines for the Black sea including elaboration of the regional legal instrument similar to ICZM Protocol for the Mediterranean

Building the shared Spatial Data Infrastructure for ICZM

Implementation of the ICZM pilot CASES initiative in Georgia as part of the overall Mediterranean and Black Sea network of 9 CASES sites.

Objectives: The aim of PEGASO is to build on existing capacities and develop common novel approaches to support integrated policies for the coastal, marine and maritime realms of the Mediterranean and Black Sea Basins in ways that are consistent with and relevant to the implementation of the ICZM Protocol for the Mediterranean. To that end, the five key objectives of the PEGASO are:

To construct an ICZM governance platform, consistent with the aims of article 14 of the ICZM protocol for the Mediterranean, to support the development of integrated policies for the coastal, marine and maritime realms of the Mediterranean and Black sea basins;

To make an integrated regional assessment for the Mediterranean and Black Sea coastal and maritime areas.

To refine and further develop efficient and easy to use tools for making sustainability assessments in the coastal zone.

To test and validate the assessment tools at regional and local scales to understand both global and cumulative local trends and how they interact in specific coastal and marine regions.

To establish and strengthen mechanisms for networking and capacity development so as to promote knowledge transfer and continued use of project outputs.

2009 – 2013 Georgia University of Geneva Task Manager EC’s 7th Framework Programme, Theme 6 Environment (including climate change), FP7-ENV-2008-1, EnviroGRIDS, Building Capacity for a Black Sea Catchment Observation and Assessment System supporting Sustainable Development (www.EnviroGRIDS.net)

Work Package 2, task 2.4 – Remote Sensing Data – as the leading member of the GeoGraphic’s team, contributing to remote sensing data collection, data integration into the Grid architecture and redistribution to all project partners to provide information about the project area and continuous data on the changes driven in the area. Support to remote sensing analyses, monitoring changes and trends in the Black Sea region/watershed (e.g. land use, deforestation, water quality).

Work Package 7, task 7.2 – Organization of Workshops and Training – application and use of EnviroGRIDS system by providing assistance into the organization of workshops in the Black Sea Region, to promote, present and discuss climate, demographic and land cover change scenarios, hydrological models, impacts on societal benefit areas, local, national and regional sustainability and vulnerability, directed towards raising awareness and involvement of the target groups, stakeholders, environmental managers, and NGOs.

The Black Sea Catchment is internationally known as one of ecologically unsustainable development and inadequate resource management, which has led to severe environmental, social and economic problems. The EnviroGRIDS @ Black Sea Catchment project addresses these issues by bringing several emerging information technologies that are revolutionizing the way we are able to observe our planet. The Group on Earth Observation Systems of Systems (GEOSS) is building a data-driven view of our planet that feeds into models and scenarios to explore our past, present and future. EnviroGRIDS aims at building the capacity of scientist to assemble such a system in the Black Sea Catchment, the capacity of decision-makers to use it, and the capacity of the general public to understand the important environmental, social and economic issues at stake. EnviroGRIDS will particularly target the needs of the Black Sea Commission (BSC) and the International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR) in order to help bridging the gap between science and policy.

2008 – 2009 Georgia Irene Lucius of EUCC (Currently with WWF Carpathian Programme) National ICZM Focal Point for Georgia Environmental Collaboration for the Black Sea (ECBSea) Project, Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) Component, Georgia. EuropeAid project number 120117/C/SV/Multi. Consortium of Euroconsult Mott MacDonald (The Netherlands), contract number 11177

As a National ICZM Focal Point of Georgia supported and facilitated the following project initiatives:

Preparation of The Draft ICZM Strategy for Georgia, which defines the major coastal Issues, the Objectives of Integrated Coastal Zone management, the Vision for a sustainable, economically vibrant Georgian coast, and mandates the preparation of an Action Plan with concrete targets and deadlines. A document underwent a comprehensive public review process and the final version is to be approved by the government in order to provide a new mandate, fresh impulse and guidance to the ICZM process in Georgia (currently under interagency consultation and agreement process).

Preparation of Integrated Plan for Sustainable Development of Tskaltsminda Coastal Community, address through coordinated action planning the main challenges and opportunities of Tskaltsminda village – a small coastal community located in Guria Region along the Black Sea coast of Georgia. Challenges encompass broken municipal infrastructure, limited possibility to upgrade professional skills, or erosion of the beach. Opportunities on the other hand stem from the fact that the village population has a high level of education, has innovative ideas and can make use of its close neighborhood to the Kolkheti National Park, the city of Poti or the tourism centre of Ureki. The maps produced show how the land is used today, highlight where the ecologically valuable areas are located, and propose different zones for future development (approved by Lanchkhuti local council).

Project aimed to strengthen regional co-operation, improve the main regional agreement, the Convention on the Protection of the Black Sea Against Pollution (the Bucharest Convention) and national capacities to implement the Convention. Documents and laws being developed under the Project take into account convergence with EU water and environmental legislation, in particular the EU Water Framework Directive and the EU Marine Strategy. In Georgia Project’s Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) component facilitated the development of the national ICZM Strategy for Georgia as well as piloted the ICZM-type planning initiative for the stimulation of sustainable coastal development at the local level.
