A new cooperation project to improve the environmental sustainability of Mediterranean coasts

The project ENSERES (ENhancing Socio-Ecological RESilience in Mediterranean coastal areas) funded by the European Union under the Euro-Mediterranean cooperation program ENI CBC Med, has kicked off in Malaga bringing together international organizations engaged in research, environmental protection, and public authorities from five countries to start the work plan for the next 24 months, until September 2023.

The European Topic Centre of the University of Malaga (ETC-UMA) will be the lead coordinator of this new partnership among Mediterranean cities and marine protected area networks, and the MEDSEA Foundation will contribute to the implementation of the project activities. The objective of this collaboration, involving coordinated activities with the Regional Activity Centre for Specially Protected Areas of the United Nations Mediterranean Action Plan, is to transfer of monitoring and management knowledge and techniques and digital tools across the Mediterranean shores.

The knowledge about ecosystems and biodiversity and the environmental threats and pressures they face will provide the basis for the adoption of protection and management measures with an integrated approach, in particular in Sfax (Tunisia) and in Tyre (Lebanon).
