The GEF Adriatic project is based on a remarkable approach that integrates the results from different management concepts, methodologies and scientific tools in order to provide a 360-degree vision of the sea ecosystem.
It's an innovative approach that's never been previously applied in the Adriatic region. It focuses on conducting surveys, collecting, storing and assessing data in line with the Integrated Monitoring and Assessment Programme of the Barcelona Convention, being the backbone of the ecosystem approach process. As such, it will guarantee Good Environmental Status (GES) and long-term conservation of marine and coastal resources in the Adriatic.
GEF Adriatic conducted data collection and monitoring activities in order to understand more
about the unique ecosystems of this region and their interrelations with human activities.

To achieve the Good Environmental Status of the marine and coastal area is crucial to assess the status of the marine environment,
in order to identify sources of degradation and plan mitigation measures.
