Interreg NEXT MED

Join us on December 5, 2023 for a pivotal COP28 side event themed: "The Mediterranean leading the way for a cleaner sea: our biggest ally in the fight against climate change!"

The event will take place at the Mediterranean Coalition Office – Blue Zone (Section B5, number 54), at 12.30-13.50 (Dubai time) 9:30-10:50 (CET). The event will also be live streamed on the following link:

Organized by Interreg NEXT MED Programme, the event will look at successful examples applied the Integrated Coastal Zone  Management (ICZM) principles to the challenge of marine litter, by addressing the  entire management cycle of marine litter - from monitoring and assessment to  prevention and mitigation. The ultimate goal of such examples is to facilitate the  efforts of decision makers and stakeholders in effectively dealing with marine litter towards good environmental status in the Mediterranean.

Discussions will provide an overview of scalable and replicable solutions at technical,  regulatory and cultural level to promote a healthier Mediterranean with marine and  coastal ecosystems that are productive and biologically diverse for the benefit of  present and future generations.
