Strategic Action Programme to Address Pollution from Land-Based Activities - Mediterranean

This Strategic Action Programme is based on the preliminary findings of the regionally prepared transboundary diagnostic analysis that represents a regional synthesis of actions regarding the protection of the marine environment from land-based activities. The following Table presents the perceived major problems of the Mediterranean region and their associated transboundary elements. Seven major problems have been identified from a review of the results of the work of the Mediterranean Action Plan over the last twenty years, the work of related programmes and the reviews undertaken in the context of the present activity. Five main root causes are identified as resulting in the identified problems, although the relative importance of each cause differs in relation to the individual problems. In addition two major types of action are proposed to address each of the identified problems and again the relative importance of each area of action differs according to the nature of the problem.
