The Mediterranean region is heavily dependent on natural ecosystems in terms of the quality of life and well-being of citizens, territorial attractiveness and hence the economic value of the whole area. Natural resources in the region are extremely valuable and have been recognized as a major driving force for socio-economic development.
In order to preserve natural ecosystems and facilitate the sustainable development of the Mediterranean basin protected areas, the overall objective of the European Co-funded EcoSUSTAIN project is to increase the management capacity of protected areas while developing integrated management and networking methodology as well as innovative water quality monitoring tools.
In order to develop the transferability of the EcoSUSTAIN Project results, ARATOS TECHNOLOGIES together with the other project partners are organizing a Technical Joint Meeting in Athens on November 14, 2017.
The event will create conditions for the dissemination of the Project's know-how and the future reproduction of its results. Presented project solutions will be presented with an emphasis on satellite images of water quality monitoring. At the Greek level, the pilot implementation of the long-term monitoring solution will take place in the area of ecological development of Karla - Mavrovouni - Kefalovrysos - Velestino by ARATOS TECHNOLOGIES.
The technical objectives of the event are:
1) A description of the main results of the project, the means, the experiences,
2) Presentation of Needs and Expectations by Local Interested Bodies,
3) Discussion on the verification of the quality of the results, adaptation, direct implementation and future sustainability,
4) Conducting a Press Conference.
