EU study shows need for Mediterranean sea protection

A European Union study has highlighted the need for a programme to help the countries of the southern and eastern Mediterranean reduce the pollution they release into the sea.

The study was undertaken as part of the Commission's Horizon 2020 Initiative, designed to tackle the major sources of Mediterranean pollution by the year 2020.

The results, presented by the European Commission and the European Investment Bank, note that “the decline of the Mediterranean threatens the health of the 143 million people living on its shore and jeopardises the long-term development of key economic sectors such as fishing and tourism.”

The proposed Mediterranean Hot Spot Investment Programme (MeHSIP) and the Horizon 2020 initiative are part of the European Union's cooperation with the southern and eastern Mediterranean countries involved in the Barcelona Process and covered by the EU's Neighbourhood Policy.

European Environment Commissioner, Stavros Dimas, has stated that “it is imperative that the European Union work with its Mediterranean neighbours to safeguard the environment of one of the world's major seas”, adding that “we must all cooperate to provide the appropriate resources to reserve the degradation of the Mediterranean.''

European Investment Bank Vice President, Philippe de Fontaine Vive, who is in charge of FEMIP said that ''the Hot Spot Investment Programme (MeHSIP) is an important starting point for a joint effort of international and bilateral financing institutions in order to implement the pollution reduction component of the Horizon 2020 initiative.”

To this end, as he concluded, “ FEMIP is ready to take action in order to support Mediterranean partner countries with the necessary financial investments.''
