WES Press Release - Combatting marine litter in Algeria

The Mediterranean is a pollution hotspot when it concerns marine litter, in particular plastics and single-use plastics. Through the Regional Plan on Marine Litter Management in the Mediterranean which was adopted by the Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention, Algeria is also addressing this growing problem. Under this plan, countries in the Mediterranean are asked to include measures to address marine litter in their National Action Plans. In this framework, Algeria already implemented several pilot actions and activities in ports and pilot zones.

The EU funded Water and Environment Support project (WES) started its latest activity in Algeria which will focus on monitoring actions and on measures to address the problem. Through comprehensive monitoring Alegria will be able take informed decisions and identify priority measures to effectively address the problem of marine litter. 

WES will implement this activity together with the Algerian Ministry of Environment and the Conservatoire National des Formations à l'Environnement (CNFE). Read more
