In the framework of COP27, within the Mediterranean Pavilion in which the Interreg MED Programme participates as a partner, the Interreg MED Biodiversity Protection Community organises the event “Mediterranean biodiversity challenges: acting against marine litter”.

The event will take place on Biodiversity Day and will look into ongoing efforts to address the impacts of marine litter on Mediterranean ecosystems. The panel will engage representatives from the worlds of science, policy and practice to debate over the knowledge available and gaps remaining to tackle the cumulative threats to the Mediterranean as a biodiversity hotspot; to see how integrated policies can alleviate the impacts on marine life by encouraging regional-level measures; and to learn from ongoing experiences on the ground.

Hybrid event: Mediterranean Pavilion, Blue Zone, COP27 and live streamed online (here below).
