The principal activity of PAP/RAC is Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) in the Mediterranean. It is a continuous, proactive and adaptive process of resource management for sustainable development in coastal areas. PAP/RAC with support of other MAP components provides technical assistance, guidelines, and methodologies for the practical delivery of ICZM in the Mediterranean.
Coastal Area Management Programme (CAMP) is oriented at the implementation of practical coastal management projects in selected Mediterranean coastal areas, applying the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) as a major tool.

The ICZM Protocol was signed in Madrid, on 21 January 2008. To date, nine countries and the EU have ratified it. Consequently, on 24 March 2011, the Protocol entered into force.
On the occasion of the CoP 17, held in Paris from 8 to 10 February 2012, the Action Plan for the implementation of the Protocol 2012-2019 was adopted by the Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention.
The CoP 18 (Istanbul, 3 to 6 December 2013) adopted the institutional and legal sections of the Reporting Format for the ICZM Protocol. The Parties are convinced that this Protocol represents a crucial step in the history of MAP. It will allow the countries to better manage their coastal zones, as well as to deal with the emerging coastal environmental challenges, such as the climate change.
