The Mediterranean Hot Spots Investment Programme – Project Preparation and Implementation Facility (MeHSIP-PPIF) aims to support the Horizon 2020 Investments for Pollution Reduction component. This will mainly be achieved through providing project development support to infrastructure investment projects, which will assist these projects to proceed towards securing funding and successful implementation. The projects derive mainly from the so called "hotspots" as identified under the National Action Plan (NAP) exercise that was coordinated by UNEP/MAP. In order to be chosen, projects have to meet a set of criteria (financial and environmental) as well as be strongly supported by the national administration responsible for planning and finance.
