The MSSD and its dashboard are WFP's strategic and technical tool (led by Plan Bleu) to monitor sustainability at the regional level by providing a set of 28 indicators. To achieve these objectives of monitoring sustainability and supporting decision-making processes, Plan Bleu is working to set up a genuine Mediterranean network observatory, involving specialized national agencies such as statistical institutes, thematic observatories, laboratories and ministerial departments.

Based on the latest technologies in environmental information sharing (open source and interoperable), Plan Bleu has developed a pilot project in partnership with UNEP / GRID in Geneva. This project allows to publish the data they manage (from the MSSD dashboard) and make it viewable in the MapX environment, the cartographic component of the World Environment Situation Room (WESR), the future digital infrastructure for online data sharing of UNEP. This tool offers various functionalities such as the interactive sharing of environmental information and the combination of maps of environmental information and human activities at different scales.

With a dynamic MSSD dashboard, Plan Bleu is positioned at the forefront to support the decision-making process and measure the progress made with regard to the sustainable development goals linked to the environment and multilateral environmental agreements. This goes hand in hand with enhanced governance on the sharing of environmental information by mobilizing the collective expertise (institutional, non-governmental, academic) of all the actors in the observation of the Mediterranean environment.
