The top 10 ACT4LITTER priority actions to curb marine litter in Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas

You can download now the ACT4LITTER Joint Plan for actions that gathers the top 10 priority actions to curb marine litter in Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas.

Within a period of almost two years, ACT4LITTER, an Interreg Med funded project, has provided essential support to managers of marine protected areas to fast-track actions against marine litter. Within this period, MPA managers and marine litter experts from 26 entities and 11 different countries, namely Albania, Belgium, Croatia, Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, Slovenia, Spain and Tunisia have been brought together and have evolved into a taskforce with a joint mission to curb marine litter.

The Management Bodies of nine Mediterranean coastal and marine protected areas have joined forces with ACT4LITTER in order to come up with comprehensive action plans for marine litter management in their respective MPAs. The action plans were developed step-by-step, engaging all stakeholders with the aim to reflect the MPA-specific context and characteristics and define the priority measures towards preventing and mitigating marine litter effectively. At the heart of the elaboration process of the actions plans, lay the decision-making tool which facilitated the shortlisting of priority measures.
