Resumen

Las áreas ribereñas y los deltas ofrecen muchos servicios ecosistémicos que han llevado a su intensa utilización y degradación por parte de los humanos. Estos variados y únicos servicios han llevado a una priorización mundial de la conservación y protección de estos ecosistemas. Esta cuestión fue reconocida por la UNESCO al establecer la Cátedra Con-E-Ect en 2016 en la ciudad de Drama, Grecia, centrada en la conservación, protección e implementación del ecoturismo en áreas ribereñas y deltas. Las actividades específicas de la Cátedra incluyen el desarrollo de códigos de conducta, herramientas de monitoreo y ejemplos exitosos de ecoturismo. Los códigos de conducta brindan pautas sobre qué actividades se deben realizar en áreas ribereñas y deltas. Para mejorar la conservación, se recomienda que las herramientas de monitoreo para áreas ribereñas y deltas adecuadas para las partes interesadas cumplan con las condiciones ambientales de la región mediterránea.
