Short Introduction

Withering leaves and rhizomes of seagrasses cushioning sandy beaches often represent an aesthetic problem for mainstream tourism in the Mediterranean. Tons of this material are removed and disposed in many coastal areas in an effort to maintain them attractive. However, removal may affect beach erosion and the growth of adjacent dune vegetation.

POSBEMED aims to enhance awareness on the benefits of this natural capital. This project will offer common sustainable tools to improve management capacity, with practical and effective guidelines for beach users and managers. Its final goal is to develop a transnational joint management strategy for Posidonia meadows, beaches and foredune systems along the Mediterranean coasts.
