Project Document for MAP
The Mediterranean Sea Large Marine Ecosystem is under increasing threat due to uncontrolled coastal development, population expansion, increasing coastal tourism, unregulated and unsustainable fishing, overextraction of freshwater (including aquifers and groundwater) and pollution. Recognizing the need to protect the Mediterranean Sea, the Mediterranean Action Plan (MAP) with the financial support of GEF launched two consecutive projects which prepared the Transboundary Diagnostic Analysis for the Mediterranean Sea (TDAMED) followed by the preparation of two Strategic Action Plans (SAPs).
