Activities The Euro-Mediterranean Centre on Insular Coastal Dynamics (ICoD) forms part of a network of specialised Centres pertaining to the EUR-OPA Major Hazards Agreement of the Council of Europe. EUR-OPA is a platform for co-operation between European and Southern Mediterranean countries in the field of major natural and technological disasters.
Through an agreement between the Council of Europe and the government of Malta, ICoD was established in 1988 within the framework of the Foundation for International Studies at the University of Malta. Since its inception it has addressed various issues concerning the marine and coastal environment. More recently, the Centre has re-oriented its objectives and activities towards a greater focus on the interactive processes which occur within the coastal zone and, in particular, those concerning insular areas. ICoD's offices are currently located on campus.
