Conclusions of the Mediterranean Workshop

Publication of the policy recommendations following the workshop on “the impacts of anthropogenic changes on Mediterranean marine ecosystems and the economy”

Co-organized by the Monaco Scientific Center (MSC) and Plan Bleu, and supported by the Prince Albert Government, the Prince Albert Foundation II and the UNEP MAP of the Barcelona Convention, on October 18 and 19, 2017 at the Oceanographic Museum, a brochure of policy recommendations was published with the collaboration of 45 experts from 17 countries and from various fields of expertise, social and natural sciences, to compare threats and impacts and propose more pragmatic solutions, on the three parts of the Mediterranean: North, East and South.

The Mediterranean Sea is an important hotspot of biodiversity and climate change impacts. It is now facing both chronic and acute social, economic and ecological changes and challenges. Many anthropogenic impacts have been identified in marine and coastal zones of the Mediterranean that are amplified by current and emerging climate change effects. The magnitude of impact differs between countries due to differences in geographic and demographic characteristics such as the size of the country or the profile of the coastal population (including population density), and by different levels of economic development, marine and coastal activities, and economic, consumption, production and energy models.
