Gestion intégrée des ressources naturelles et développement durable des petites îles : l’objectif de la session est de discuter de la nécessité et des défis de la gestion intégrée des ressources naturelles sur les petites îles : quelles sont les spécificités de ces territoires? Quels sont les exemples positifs de pratiques durables, basées sur des décisions partagées, en particulier des exemples de solutions fondées sur la nature?

Experts from different geographical areas and backgrounds will lead this session: from public representatives, to site managers and civil society organisations. The goal of the session is to discuss the need for and the challenges of natural resources integrated management on small islands: what are the specificities of those territories? What are positive examples of sustainable practices, based on shared decisions, in particular example of nature-based solutions?

Session Partner:

SMILO

SMILO, a France based NGO, supports small islands of less than 150km² towards the sustainable management of their territory and resources. Our approach aims to guarantee that human development respects and fosters islands’ good ecological and environmental status, thanks to a shared governance. The main objective is to bolster integrated operations for the preservation and sustainable management of the island’s natural resources, in relation to water and sanitation, waste, energy, biodiversity, landscapes and heritage issues. The local dynamics and these sustainable practices are recognised with the awarding of the “Sustainable Island“ label. Currently, 18 islands are involved in our labelling process. Within this process, SMILO manages the Islands Fund, which finances concrete operations on the islands. SMILO international Network contributes to strengthening cooperation and solidarity between islands and island partners. Over 40 members are part of this network and are located in West Africa, the Indian Ocean, Southeast Asia, Europe and the Mediterranean.

Marie Cortes

Head of the Sea and Coastline Directorate, Marseille City

The 54km of Marseille coastline and its islands constitute a common heritage in many ways: environmental, architectural, historical, landscape and common identity. The city of Marseille wished to consider both the costline and the islands to their highest value and founding parts of the Marseille territory by setting up a Directorate of the Sea in 2014. At the head of the Sea and Coastline service since 2016, I coordinate the action of 4 teams covering a wide spectrum of missions, the main ones of which are:
• Develop and enhance the urbanized coastline through investment operations;
• Restore and preserve the marine, coastal and island environment, manage its uses;
• Raise the offer of coastal services to the best level for a healthy and preserved land and maritime environment,
• Develop and disseminate a maritime culture among the people of Marseille both in terms of social practices and in environmental terms
