The major objective of LiCCo on this site is to educate local stakeholders to anticipate global phenomena in their management. Also, LiCCo will try to educate local stakeholders to another mode of management and develop a monitoring protocol (habitats and sediments).

The project was funded from a Leonardo da Vinci grant.
The project started in 2010 and was finished in 2012.
