CO-EVOLVE partners recently handed over the very last technical deliverable from the project’s studying phase. They are now fully ready to launch the testing activities, which will mainly focus on CO-EVOLVE’s pilot areas.

The publication of CO-EVOLVE’s last studying technical deliverable ‘Evaluation of Tourism Sustainability in Pilot Areas’ on 8 February officially marked the end of the project’s studying phase. 

Besides the analyses of main threats to (i.e. climate change, morphological stability, littoralisation, urbanisation, pollution, conflicts of use) and enabling factors (i.e. coastal and ecosystems protection, water cycle and depuration, transport and accessibility, legislation and governance) for the development of sustainable tourism, the pilot areas analyses and the ‘Tourism Sustainability Toolkit’, which were released in September 2017, new deliverables have recently been produced. These include the syntheses of threats and enabling factors analyses, the evaluation of the ‘Tourism Sustainability Toolkit’ itself and its application in pilot areas, and the ‘Tourism-driven Strategic Planning’.

Partners are now fully ready to engage in the testing phase, which will be running from February 2018 to May 2019. Further details concerning upcoming testing activities will be discussed on the occasion of the project’s 4th steering committee in Bologna, on 6-7 March 2018. On this occasion, the Emilia-Romagna Region, CO-EVOLVE’s testing phase coordinator, is organising a training course to help partners be better prepared for the launch of testing activities.
