Objective

ARCHAEOMAP objective calls for balanced interrelated policies about an integrated costal zone management focus on ten archaeological costal pilot sites in Mediterranean. It aims at protection of environmental resources and bio-cultural diversity to support a socio-economical development trough cultural tourism.

ARCHAEOMAP proposes an interdisciplinary research agenda and capacity building aiming to improve the relationship of Mediterranean people with their marine environment. Its targets are the ecological, social and economic dimensions of maritime culture loss and the reduction of this loss. It uses its network of pilot sites as vehicles for knowledge-sharing, research and monitoring, education and training, and participatory decision-making. ARCHAEOMAP wants to provide context-specific opportunities to combine scientific knowledge and governance modalities in an inter-disciplinary methodology.

ARCHAEOMAP pilot sites can also serve as learning and demonstration sites in the framework of the United Nations Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014/DESD) In its International Committee setting, ARCHAEOMAP will encourage an interdisciplinary methodology focus on research in natural sciences and social sciences, and demonstration and training activities involving questions of natural and cultural resource management. ARCHAEOMAP takes an active interest in sustainable development, putting the accent on conservation and the rational utilisation of costal zone resources.

With the background of interdisciplinary and interculturality inherent to UNESCO scientific coordination, ARCHAEOMAP International Committee will encourage scientific research and the collection of information but never chooses to ignore traditional knowledge of maritime resource management. ARCHAEOMAP project will promote its large-scale marine pilot sites network in Mediterranean encouraging its transboundary and serial nominations to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
