OCEAN HEALTH: MONEY WELL SPENT

As we approach the end of this financial period and debate the shape of the next one, here is an overview of what is being done with the share of the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund that is not divided up among EU countries but is devoted directly to the Integrated Maritime Policy, to ocean governance and to the blue economy. This share amounts to €292 million for the period 2014-2020 - roughly 4.5% of the overall European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (€6.4 billion) - and has been devoted to the most pressing issues (both environmental and economic) that our seas are facing today.
