5 EUSAIR macro-region characteristics
The area affects a region primarily defined by the Adriatic and Ionian Maritime Strategy, also covering important terrestrial surface area. EUSAIR treats the marine, coastal and terrestrial areas as interconnected systems

6 EUSAIR: area challenges….
Socio-economic disparities; Transport; Energy; Environment; Natural and man-made hazards and risks entailed by climate change; Administrative and institutional issues. … and opportunities Blue Economy; Connectivity; Cultural and natural heritage and biodiversity; Tourism.

32 Contacts with MAs of MED, BALKAN-MED, DANUBE, CENTRAL EUROPE and ALPINE SPACE are on going with the aim of coordinating the 3 programmes with partially overlapping areas and objectives in such a way as to maximize the their respective impact: i.e. joint communication, coordination during calls, capitalization are some of the issues at stake.
