10 YEARS OF ADRIAPAN – PAST AND FUTURE

The network of Adriatic marine and coastal protected areas, AdriaPAN-Adriatic Protected Areas Network, celebrated the tenth anniversary of its foundation last Wednesday, September 26th in San Benedetto del Tronto, hosted by the Sentina Nature Reserve, with the event “10 years of AdriaPAN, past and future”. The event was attended by representatives of the marine and coastal protected areas of the Adriatic basin, representatives of the Abruzzo Region and the Adriatic Ionian Initiative and members of local and national associations.

 

During the institutional ceremony held in the morning, there was also the delivery of a photo by Giuseppe PIGNOTTI winner of the EuinmyRegion European Competition, to the Abruzzo Region Councilor Luciano MONTICELLI, Mayor of the Municipality of Pineto when the Cerrano Charter (founding act of AdriaPAN) was signed; to the Executive Officer of the IAI-Adriatic-Ionian Initiative, Filippo ALABARDI, an institution that recognized AdriaPAN in 2013, and lastly, to the representatives of the Miramare Marine Reserve, Carlo FRANZOSINI and Saul CIRIACO, who have promoted and co-managed the network in these years.

 

We discussed the results achieved by the network and the commitments for future years based on new projects and the extension of the network to the protected areas of the Ionian Sea in order to reach a territorial coincidence with the Adriatic-Ionian Macro Region.

In particular, we confirmed some important strategic aspects already contained in the AdrioNET project, presented in the last INTERREG Adrion call, but without being funded in the first session:

  1. the need to extend the network to the Ionian Sea (from AdriaPAN to AdrIonPAN), both for environmental continuity and for consistency with respect to the Adriatic-Ionian Macro Region and its strategy (EUSAIR);
  2. the need to evaluate the transition to a defined legal form in order to represent an even stronger and more active reference point, both for protected areas and for institutions at different levels. In this regard, we highlighted that MedPAN included as a strategic objective the strengthening of sub-regional networks for the period 2019-2023.
  3. The need to continue the elaboration of projects focused on different topics, such as biodiversity, ecosystem services and adaptation to climate change, integrating these issues with sustainable tourism oriented towards the use of cultural and environmental assets that are currently overlooked (i.e. underwater archaeology and projects promoted by the Envix-Lab of the University of Molise).

 

Finally, the importance of organizing a frontal meeting of AdriaPAN members within the next few months was also highlighted, possibly in the context of the MedPAN activities.
