Íntegrated design/management constraints of coastal aquifers and conceptsís the first scientific report of the project Sustainable Water Management In Mediterranean Coastal Aquifers: Recharge Assessment and Modelling Issues (SWIMED) in the framework of the INCO II (1998--2002) initiative of the European Commission. This initiative was meant in order to promote collaborative research of Mediterranean partner countries in the context of transboundary economic, environmental and socio--political problems. The report is intended to present --in its first part-- the state of the art of the management of water resources in coastal aquifers under different constraints, with special attention to the characterization and modeling methodologies and to the related information technology (GIS and database) issues. In addition, a unified approach is proposed for the development of modeling studies of saltwater intrusion phenomena in the framework of a sustainable water resources management in coastal aquifers. Finally, a brief description of the several study sites selected to be studied during the SWIMED project is included (part two). This report collects the contributions of all the institutions involved in the SWIMED project: 1. Water Research Institute of the University of Granada, Spain (coordinator); 2. Hydrology and Water Resources Management Group of the Centre for Advanced Studies, Research and Development in Sardinia (CRS4), Pula, Italy; 3. Institut de Mechanique de Fluides (IMFT) of the Institut National Polytechnique de Toulouse (INPT), France; 4. Centre of Hydrogeology (CHYN) of the University of Neuchatel, Switzerland; 5. Mohammadia School of Engineers (EMI), Rabat, Morocco; 6. Environmental and Rural Research Centre (ERRC), Palestinian Authority, Islamic University of Gaza; 7. Laboratory of Hydrogeology of the Institut National Agronomique de Tunisie (INAT), Tunis, Tunisia; 8. Laboratory of Applied Geophysics of the University of Barcelona (UB), Spain.
