UNEP/MAP-SPA/RAC is a partner in the new project “ENSERES” financed by the European Union.

The project ENSERES (ENhancing Socio-Ecological RESilience in Mediterranean coastal areas) funded by the European Union under the Euro-Mediterranean cooperation program ENI CBC Med, has kicked off in Malaga on 20 October 2021 bringing together international organizations engaged in research, environmental protection, and public authorities from five countries to start the work plan for the next 24 months, until September 2023.

SPA/RAC is part of this new partnership among Mediterranean cities and marine protected area networks. The objective of this new collaboration is to enhance transfer monitoring and management knowledge and techniques and digital tools across the Mediterranean shores. The knowledge about ecosystems and biodiversity and the environmental threats and pressures they face will provide the basis for the adoption of protection and management measures with an integrated approach, in particular in Sfax (Tunisia) and in Tyre (Lebanon).

The project aims to integrate existing management tools with an ecosystem-based approach into coastal and marine areas.  The Mediterranean natural resources offered by the sea and its surroundings are crucial for its economic and social sustainability. This project should help people living along the coast to better know the value of these ecosystems and engage them in their protection through an enhanced integrated management of human activities.
