MULTIFUNCTION ARTIFICIAL REEFS

PETITION – MULTIFUNCTIONAL ARTIFICIAL REEFS TO PROTECT THE COASTLINE AND THE DUNES

We are campaigning to have artificial reefs installed in the 3 coastal zones to the east of Marbella (Elviria-Las Chapas) which have dunes.

Reasons to defending artificial reefs:
– offset more than 90% of the negative effects of storm surge
– create marine ecosystems with immense biological wealth
– compact the seafloor
– do not ruin the view from the beach
– do not upset marine dynamics or currents

We have carried out the necessary proceedings in:
– The Ministry of the Environment – Administration of Sustainability for the Coast and the Marine Area
– Costal Demarcation Andalusia-Mediterranean, Malaga
– The Ministry of the Environment and Planning
– The Provincial Council of Malaga
– Marbella Town Hall

January 2020 – ProDunas, as an interested player, was invited to participate in a meeting with the General Directorate for Structural Reforms (DG.REFORM) of the European Commission (EC) at the request of MITECO (Ministry for the Ecological Transition) and DGSCM (General Directorate for Sustainability of the Coast and the Sea) – the official Spanish organisations working with the European Commission.
