Initiative of the Competent Authorities of the Region of Macaronesia for the environmental management of the coastline, oriented towards the provision of defined coastal strips according to a number of environmental and territorial variables, in such a manner that they are adapted to the peculiar nature of each of the islands. In this way, a basic territorial unit is obtained which, once cartographically transposed to a digital format, will become a management tool of great usefulness, making possible the drawing up of an Integrated Management Strategy for the coastal areas of the Canaries, the Azores and Madeira.
