Achieving a cleaner Mediterranean Sea requires better implementation of policies and enhanced environmental data and information, according to a joint report by the European Environment Agency (EEA) and United Nations Environment Programme’s Mediterranean Action Plan (UNEP/MAP), noting that accumulative effects of waste and marine litter, and wastewater and industrial emissions remain key challenges for the region. The joint EEA and UNEP/MAP report ‘Towards a cleaner Mediterranean Sea: a decade of progress’ (LINK) takes stock of the progress achieved and challenges ahead in the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) Horizon 2020 initiative for a cleaner Mediterranean (H2020).
