ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
This book would not have been possible without the European projectMare Nostrum. Special thanks goes toCarlo Alberto Garzonio andGiorgio Risicarisfrom the Università degli Studi di Firenze, Department of Construction and Restoration (DiCR), the project leaders, for their excellent coordination and support during the planning stage. We would also like to thank all partners and associates for their collaboration and support during the participatory planning missions thus contributing to the development of the project, these include: the Municipality of Rhodes, Old Town Office (Greece), The House of Europe in Rhodes (Greece), University of the Aegean, Laboratory of Tourism Research and Studies (ETEM) (Greece), the Municipality of Tyre (Lebanon), USJ/Université Saint Joseph, Faculté des Lettres et des Sciences Humaines & University of Balamand / MAJAL, Academic Laboratory for Construction and Reconstruction (Lebanon). We are particularly grateful toLiliane Buccianti -Barakatand Andreas Papatheodoroufor the preface and for supporting this work. Special thanks must go toFabrizio Fuccello DiCR,Mare Nostrum ScientificAdvisor, without whom the projectMare Nostrumwould not have been realised. Without his active support and his Mediterranean ‘perspective’ the missions in Rhodes and Tyre would have been nowhere near as successful. A special acknowledgment goes to the working group which has carried out its duties with enthusiasm and competenceIsabelle Toussaint, Emanuela GalettoandMatteo Robigliofrom the Avventura Urbana Ltd. Obviously, special thanks to all the people who were interviewed and finally thanks to Kamilah Khatib for her patient support and assistance.

Preface
Liliane Buccianti-Barakat The Mediterranean is both a ‘border’ which divides and a ‘bridge’ which unites Europe, Asia and Africa. The Mediterranean Region is crucial to understanding the origins and the development of many modern societies. The sea has had a major influence on the history and ways of life of these cultures. It provided a means of trade, colonisation and war, and was the basis of life (via fishing and the gathering of other seafood) for numerous communities throughout the ages. The Phoenicians were earth’s first-known sailors and explorers. Their cities surrounded the entire Mediterranean Sea, a region they came to dominate peacefully. Considered the world’s Cradles of Civilization, the Mediterranean Sea has been known by a number of names throughout human history. For example the Romans commonly called it Mare Nostrum (Latin, ‘Our Sea’). The Mediterranean Region is today a leading tourist destination, focused primarily around seaside summer holidays. Many historic port-cities have in recent decades undertaken redevelopment towards new post-industrial uses centred around meeting the new demands of tourism. Such uses offer the potential for creating more sustainable and effective cities but equally they may lead to problems such as the erosion of heritage, and decreased quality of life through congestion and pollution. Overcoming such issues is crucial to the future of many Mediterranean port cities, since increasing pressures for new tourist sites in the region are exacerbating long-standing conflicts between economic development and the preservation of local culture in many cities. Tourism, Phoenician trade routes and preservation of both built heritage and local culture by local authorities in 6 port-cities are the main focuses of the project ‘Mare Nostrum- a heritage trail along the Phoenician maritime routes and historic port-cities of the Mediterranean’, funded by the Euromed Heritage IV programme of the European Commission. Within the project, Paralleli - Istituto Mediterraneo del Nord Ovest undertook a participatory planning approach. This method already used in European and American cities aims to approach the complex questions of local management as well as to successfully negotiate the conflicts between local stakeholders, focus groups and local authorities. Mare Nostrum partnerin Lebanon, the Université Saint-Joseph, invited many professors and public actors to a conference on the participatory approach in urban issues, presenting similar fieldwork experiences in European countries. Similarly, the Urban Observatory Majal (Institute of Urban Planning - ALBA) also worked in raising awareness among the major actors in public consultation through a conference that gathered many concerned parties and produced a pamphlet presenting an overview, objectives, proposed reforms and guidelines under the title ‘Promoting Public Consultation in Urban Policy’ in partnership with USAID, Amideast and the Lebanese Transparency Association. This volume gives guidelines of the participatory approach and its methodology. The two pilot experiences in Rhodes (Greece) and Tyre (Lebanon) were successful because they brought out unique ‘Mediterranean’ perspectives and proposals that will benefit the Mare Nostrumproject in other Mediterranean locations.
