The basic management and coordination structures of the project are the Project Management Unit (PMU), the Steering Committee (SC) and the Coordination Group (CG). These instruments are shared with the “sister project” MedPartnership.
The Coordination Group is responsible for the overall coordination of the project and its activities.
The Steering Committee acts as the main policy body overseeing the execution of the project. It meets annually and is comprised of the MedPartnership National Focal Points from all GEF-eligible countries, representatives of the implementing agencies and the executing agency, the GEF Secretariat, the co-executing agencies and the EU, the Project Manager, the President of the Bureau of Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention, major donors and one NGO representing a network of NGOs in the Mediterranean.
The Project Management Unit is responsible for the execution of the project and is located in UNEP/MAP in Athens.
