A new partnership to enhance environmental security
A new UN Environment - GEF partnership in the mediterranean to enhance environmental security.
Executing partners of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) Mediterranean Sea Programme (MedProgramme): Enhancing Environmental Security held their first meeting on 17 to 19 May 2017, in Athens Greece.
The MedProgramme builds on the success of the previous GEF-funded MedPartnership and ClimVar & ICZM projects. It aims to reduce the major transboundary environmental stresses affecting the Mediterranean Sea and its coastal areas while strengthening climate resilience and water security, and improving the health and livelihoods of coastal populations.
The meeting aimed to create synergies among different partners and to fully enter in the preparation phase of the project documents of the 7 Child Projects of the MedProgramme.
