The Mediterranean Coast Day 2022 will be celebrated next 28th September in Morocco. The theme of this edition is on the Coastal Resilience.

Mediterranean Coast Day is an annual observance introduced by the Mediterranean Action Plan of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP/MAP). PAP/RAC, the UNEP/MAP Regional Activity Centre dedicated to the protection and sustainable management of the coastal zones, established Mediterranean Coast Day within the framework of the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) Protocol to the Convention for the Protection of the Marine Environment and the Coastal Region of the Mediterranean (Barcelona Convention). The date of 25 September was selected for this observance to commemorate the first ratification of the ICZM Protocol by Slovenia.

This year's edition of Mediterranean Coast Day will focus on coastal resilience—a particularly topical theme at a time when the impacts of climate change and environmental degradation in the Mediterranean are becoming ominously clear.

The official Mediterranean Coast Day ceremony will take place on 28 September 2022 in Tangier, Morocco, with the participation of H.E. Dr Leila Benali, Minister of Energy Transition and Sustainable Development of Morocco.
