Project - Sustainable Islands: Island Network for Sustainable Development and Heritage Preservation

Description


Description (EN): The small islands of the Maritime area have a unique cultural and natural heritage; however, they are also fragile because of the challenges posed by a mainly seaside tourism. These island areas support significant seasonal population variations and have common heritage degradation issues, in addition to waste management and energy supply not fit for environmental quality. The islands belonging to the partnership—Lérins island (AM), Hyères islands (VAR), Lavezzi islands (CORSICA), Capraia island (TOSC), Tavolara and Asinara island (SARD), Palmaria island (LIG)—wish to engage in this strategic integrated project to preserve their assets and jointly develop a "sustainable island" approach. They will rely on the incipient international Small Sustainable Islands initiative; the Maritime cooperation area will be perfect to experiment this new brand. Therefore, the project ISOS - Sustainable Islands intends to do the following: • create a network of French and Italian islands engaging the preservation of their natural and cultural heritage featuring technical workshops, conferences, expert mobilisation, a calendar or a series of initiatives. • implement practical pilot actions together with local operators to obtain the following: - better management of natural resources with innovative solutions suitable for small islands (renewable energy, waste separation and heritage promotion). The spread of this network on the Maritime scale and the planned investments will lead to the "sustainable islands" certification of the project islands, due to their having built together sustainable strategies for the protection of natural and cultural heritage and the benefit of their populations.
Description: Le piccole isole della zona del Marittimo sono territori che dispongono di patrimoni culturali e naturali unici, tuttavia sono anche territori fragili rispetto alle sfide imposte da un turismo principalmente di tipo balneare. Questi territori insulari, con notevoli variazioni di popolazione in base alle stagioni, conoscono problematiche comuni di degrado del loro patrimonio, di gestione dei rifiuti o di fornitura di energia poco adatte alla qualità ambientale dei luoghi. Le isole facenti parte della partnership – isola di Lérins (AM), isole di Hyères (VAR), isole Lavezzi (CORSICA), isola di Capraia (TOSC), isola di Tavolara e dell’Asinara (SARD), isola di Palmaria (LIG) – desiderano impegnarsi in questo progetto strategico integrato territoriale per preservare i loro patrimoni e sviluppare congiuntamente un approccio di “isola sostenibile”. Esse si baseranno sull’Iniziativa internazionale incipiente delle Piccole Isole Sostenibili; facendo dello spazio di cooperazione Marittimo la zona sperimentale perfetta per questo nuovo marchio. Il progetto ISOS – Isole Sostenibili intende dunque: • creare una rete di isole francesi e italiane impegnate nella preservazione dei patrimoni naturali e culturali insulari che sarà animata con workshop tecnici, conferenze, mobilitazione di esperti, un calendario oppure un insieme di iniziative. • mettere in atto, con gli operatori locali, delle azioni pilota concrete per: - una migliore gestione delle risorse naturali con soluzioni innovative adatte alle piccole isole (energia rinnovabile, raccolta differenziata dei rifiuti, ecc. - e la valorizzazione dei patrimoni insulari. La diffusione di questa rete su scala Marittimo; e gli investimenti previsti porteranno alla certificazione di “isole sostenibili” delle isole del progetto, avendo co-costruito strategie sostenibili per la protezione dei patrimoni naturali e culturali a beneficio delle popolazioni
Description: Les petites îles de la zone Marittimo sont des territoires singuliers, qui disposent de patrimoines culturels et naturels uniques, pourtant ce sont également des territoires fragiles, confrontés aux enjeux de la fréquentation touristique principalement tournée vers un usage balnéaire. Ces territoires isolés, avec de fortes variations de population selon la saison, connaissent des problématiques communes de dégradation de leur patrimoine, de gestion des déchets ou d'approvisionnement en énergie peu adaptés à la qualité environnementale des lieux. Les gestionnaires des îles du partenariat - île de Lérins (AM), îles d’Hyères (VAR), îles Lavezzi (CORSE), île de Capraia (TOSC), île de Tavolara et de l'Asinara (SARD), île de Palmaria (LIG) - souhaitent s'engager dans ce projet stratégique intégré territorial pour préserver leurs patrimoines, et développer une approche conjointe “île durable”. Elles s'appuyeront sur l’Initiative internationale naissante des « Petites Iles Durables », faisant de l'espace de coopération Marittimo la zone test parfaite de ce nouveau label. Le projet ISOS – Isole Sostenibili entend donc : • créer un réseau d’îles françaises et italiennes engagées dans la préservation des patrimoines naturels et culturels insulaires, qui sera animé via des ateliers techniques, des conférences, la mobilisation d'experts, une banque d'initiatives. • mettre en place, avec les acteurs locaux, des actions pilotes concrètes pour : - une meilleure gestion des ressources naturelles avec des solutions innovantes adaptées à l'échelle des petites îles (énergie renouvelable, tri des déchets etc.) - la valorisation des patrimoines insulaires. Le déploiement de ce réseau à l'échelle « Marittimo » et les investissements prévus permettront d'aboutir à la certification « Iles durables » des îles du projet, tout en ayant co-construit des stratégies durables de protection des patrimoines naturels et culturels, au bénéfice des populations locales.
