The main objective of the PoMs Workshop was to present the overall work carried out under the Activity 3 “Assistance in the preparation of programme of measures, by addressing particular gaps identified both at national and regional level, linking together work on Programmes of Measures (PoM) under the MSFD and under the auspices of UNEP/MAP-Barcelona Convention (the PoM Activity)”, which is led by UNEP/MAP. Under the Activity 3, ActionMed is expected to deliver the following:
- Assessment of common gaps in national and regional measures and identification of issues requiring action to achieve or maintain GES
- Proposal of potential new/updated measures to fill the gaps and achieve/maintain GES
- Socio-economic assessment / cost efficiency analysis of regional measures
Under the ActionMed Activity 3, several national and subregional workshops have been held to exchange experiences and lessons learned on PoMs to implement MSFD in synergy with the Barcelona Convention, with a particular focus on pollution and litter MSFD descriptors.
The objective of this workshop was to bring together representatives from all the Mediterranean EU Member States, to review and provide feedback to the above- mentioned project deliverables.
