We are committed to work for a cleaner, 
healthier and safer Adriatic Sea.

The marine and coastal areas of the Adriatic sub-region contain the most notable marine and costal Mediterranean habitats that provide valuable ecosystem services. 

The main aim of the GEF Adriatic project is to galvanise the adoption of an ecosystem approach in regional marine spatial planning (MSP). The project is helping planners to manage the development of a sustainable blue economy, by providing a detailed understanding of the functions and interactions of the marine environment, assessing opportunities and measuring risks, while targeting Good Environmental Status.
