How we will achieve our goals


ACT4LITTER is developing a series of activities to preserve natural ecosystems from marine litter in Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas:

  • Identification of potential measures to address marine litter issues in Mediterranean MPAs in particular those that promote prevention upstream;
  • Feasibility assessment of the identified measures to be implemented in MPAs through the development of an appropriate decision-making model;
  • Development of 10 MPA-specific action plans for preventing and mitigating marine litter through a participatory approach;
  • Elaboration of a joint governance plan for improving marine litter management in Mediterranean MPAs through the integration of relevant lessons learnt.
