REST-COAST partners engage in key meetings on Ebro Delta pilot site

10 June 2024

Over the past several months, REST-COAST partners have participated in two events regarding the Ebro Delta pilot site. 

In March 2024, key representatives from the Spanish and Catalan governments, local administrations, and various stakeholders convened with Ebro Delta partners to review the progress and findings of the REST-COAST project. This high-level meeting featured the Spanish Minister for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge, the Catalan Minister for Climate Action, Food and Rural Agenda, along with other senior administrative officials. Discussions focused on the project's impact on the Ebro Delta and its future direction.

In May 2024, Prof. Agustín Sánchez-Arcilla (UPC) and Dr. Luís Garrote (UPM) participated in a Technical Workshop in Alicante, Spain, focused on deltas and sediments. Organized by the Júcar River Authority, the Spanish Agency of International Cooperation for Development (AECID), and the Regional UNESCO Office in Cairo, the workshop aimed to promote the biodiversity of Mediterranean deltas and address their challenges from coastal, environmental, social, and economic perspectives. The event highlighted the REST-COAST project's coastal restoration efforts at the Ebro Delta, specifically the creation of embryo dunes as a nature-based solution to sustainably combat delta erosion and regression.
