    The IMP-MED project Regional Technical Workshop will address the following topics:

    • monitoring of marine environment,
    • oil and gas exploration and exploitation,
    • port/ ship waste management.

     

    Background:

    The Integrated Maritime Policy for the Mediterranean (IMP-MED) Project, funded by the European Union and led by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Development and Cooperation, in co-operation with the Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, was launched in November 2010 and was extended until November 2014. The primary aims of the project are to provide technical assistance and support to Partner Countries in:

    • Acquiring knowledge of Integrated Maritime Policy, both from the EU Member States and other countries, in particular on aspects such as governance, marine spatial planning, development of marine knowledge and marine and maritime research;
    • Developing a strategic national approach, and where necessary a framework, to support the adoption of a  national IMP; and
    • Implementing coordinated actions and initiatives at a regional level which could be supported by the EU.

    The IMP-MED Project organises the Regional Technical Workshops on Integrated Maritime Policy twice per year.
