The Mediterranean Marine Litter Node is now publicly available: Marine Litter Node
The Mediterranean Marine Litter Node is developed with the support of UNEP Environment Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Activities (GPA), in the framework of the Global Partnership on Marine Litter.
It is launched to enhance awareness on marine litter prevention and reduction measures; promote the exchange of information and knowledge; establish linkages and synergies with GPML and other regional and international processes; coordinate, assist, and facilitate the establishment of cooperation mechanisms at regional level; and most importantly support the implementation of the Regional Plan on Marine Litter Management in the Mediterranean, combat marine litter and enhance its effective management.
The final version of the Mediterranean Node will be presented during COP21, in Naples, in December 2019.
