The Conference on Sub-Regional Cooperation in Marine Litter Management in Adriatic-Ionian Macro Region was carried out on March 25th in Split, Croatia.

The objective of the Conference was to contribute to sub-regional cooperation in addressing Marine Litter issue, which is also the main request of the European Commission in its guidance for the next phase of the MSFD implementation.

  • sub-regional cooperation in preparation of the MSFD Program of measures / Revision of LSB NAPs with integrated ML measures / considerations;
  • discussion and elaboration of the measure dealing with identification of ML hot spots in Adriatic-Ionian sub-region as well as discussion and identification of proven ML management models with potential for cross-border    transfer/replication;

  • underexploited opportunities for highly effective measures;
