Decision to submit for COP21 from Plan Bleu

Since the late 1970’s countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea and the European Union, Parties to the Barcelona Convention, have recognized the importance of common assessments on the State of the environment and development in the region, major future trends and potential future scenarios to critically inform decision making.

At COP 21, the Secretariat of the MAP Barcelona Convention System, through its Plan Bleu Regional Activity Center, will present an important new assessment: the 2019 Report on the State of the Environment and Development in the Mediterranean (SoED 2019), as well as an updated dashboard of indicators to monitor the advancement of the Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development, closely articulated with global SDG indicators.

The SoED 2019 report, prepared and reviewed by about 100 MAP components and partners under the lead of Plan Bleu Regional Activity Center, will provide public and private decision makers with an updated description of current environment and development challenges in the Mediterranean, insisting on their interactions and emerging solutions. The last Mediterranean SoED report was published ten years ago. New findings and Key Messages will help Contracting Parties agree on future priorities for action, and design a new Medium-Term Strategy for 2022-2027.
