With its call for projects, BeMed wished to reinforce the field actions already underway in the Mediterranean islands and to support projects that can achieve measurable impacts.
plastic pollution at source and its impact on the marine environment
the implementation of sustainable solutions
the capacities of local stakeholders and create partnerships
a dynamic among stakeholders and facilitate experience sharing
The call for projects concerned the islands of the entire Mediterranean basin, with no priority given to size. These islands are particularly vulnerable to plastic pollution, which threatens their exceptional biodiversity and the living environment of local populations.
The challenges of managing and treating plastic waste are particularly acute on these territories, which are at the heart of the land-sea interface and of the waste transfer routes to the marine environment. However, they are also opportunities to develop and test concrete and innovative solutions to reduce plastic pollution, find sustainable alternatives, and raise awareness among inhabitants and visitors.
