The Regional Project has four components:

Component 1: Integrated approaches for the implementation of the SAPs and NAPs: ICZM, IWRM and management of coastal aquifer: coordination of activities, joint outputs.

Activities implemented within this component aim to promote integrated approaches throughout the Mediterranean for the reduction of pollution and the preservation of biodiversity. This is being achieved through appropriate management of the coastal and marine environments, including aquifers. Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) and Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) are the overarching policy frameworks for all activities within this component. The activities of this component focus on national and regional policy, legislation and institutional reforms taking fully into account the ICZM Protocol. In addition, joint demonstration projects at selected sites are included.

Component 2: Pollution from land based activities, including Persistent Organic Pollutants: Implementation of SAP-MED.

Activities implemented within this component aim to develop, draft and propose national and regional legal, policy and institutional reforms that address SAP-MED and NAPs priorities to reduce pollution in the Mediterranean, and to achieve the financial sustainability of future respective activities. Specifically, the activities of this component focus on the facilitation of policy and legislation reforms for pollution control; establishing sustainable financing mechanisms for pollution control activities; transfer of environmentally sound technology; and providing support to the implementation of the Stockholm Convention regarding the disposal of PCB stockpiles in Mediterranean countries.

Component 3: Conservation of biological diversity: Implementation of SAP BIO and related NAPs.

Activities within this component aim to maintain the long-term function of the Mediterranean Large Marine Ecosystem through the implementation of an ecologically-coherent network of protected areas for the sustainable use of renewable marine resources. A number of short-term measures initiated in SAP-BIO are further developed and implemented through replicable demonstration activities in biodiversity representative areas of the Mediterranean. Longer-term sustainability is ensured through a series of targeted capacity-building and enabling activities that focus on both national and sub-regional levels to improve capacity for policy development and its subsequent transfer into management for biodiversity conservation.

Component 4: Project Co-ordination, NGO Involvement, Replication and Communication Strategies, Management and Monitoring and Evaluation.

This component addresses the overall management, coordination, replication and communication of the MedPartnership with specific focus on the Regional Project. Great importance has been attributed within this project to information dissemination, communication activities and replication. An integral part of this component is the facilitation of NGO and community-based organizations’ involvement in all project activities which is being achieved through capacity building and dissemination of information on lessons learned and best practices.
