On 7th July 2015, the Province of Reggio Calabria organised a launching event to inform about the implementation plan for the strait of Messina, in presence of the President of the Province, Giuseppe Raffa.
In its implementation plan, written in the framework of NOSTRA project in cooperation with the University of Reggio Calabria, the Province of Reggio Calabria gives an important place to the issue of governance, in the only strait of the partnership which both sides are located in the same country. It therefore demonstrates that there is no easy way to deal with the issue of managing a strait, even with a single institutional and legal framework. Transport issues are also highlighted, especially in the framework of a metropolitan area split into two parts by the strait and creating a strong need for territorial continuity for both the inhabitants and the economic stakeholders. The implementation plan of the Province of Reggio Calabria also tackles the issue of protecting the unique ecosystem of the strait and promoting its assets in the framework of sustainable tourism development of the whole integrated strait area.
