Brief description of the project: Underwater Cultural & Natural Heritage sites can be a major growth asset of the overall local public wealth. By valorising Underwater Cultural Heritage sites, local authorities will extract important value added to the local tourism, economic development, and to the enhancement of the territories’ competitiveness. Nevertheless, low attention has been devoted to date in the promotion of these sites, and usually authorities do not include these assets/ resources in their development plans. Under current circumstances and perspectives, it is imperative to do so. The aim of the project is to aid and assist Local authorities sites to valorise their heritage and use them as a lever for local tourism, economic, social and cultural development.
