A Cork Harbour Forum has been set up to promote and facilitate improved management of Cork Harbour as a resource, to provide an opportunity for dialogue and networking and to highlight the benefits of Integrated Coastal Zone Management.  Funded through the European Commission, the Forum is facilitated by the Coastal and Marine Resources Centre of UCC and Cork County Council.  Some 40 stakeholders representing a broad range of interested groups came together at the National Maritime College, Ringaskiddy, in a working meeting on 6th June.  This was the first step towards co-ordinated management planning for Cork Harbour.
