MedPartnership has the following objectives:
- Leveraging long-term financing issues
- Assisting nations in implementation of NAPs and SAPs for reduction of pollution from land-based sources and preservation of ecosystems and biodiversity requirements of the Sea under degradation
- Helping countries in implementing ICZM (Integrated Coastal Zone Management) Protocol.
- Ensuring sustainability of activities initiated within the project through MAP systems and Barcelona Convention
The three important instruments followed by MedPartnership are: ICZM, SAPs and NAPs. These will assist the countries to achieve Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Take a review on Millennium Development Goals at https://www.usaid.gov/mdg.It will also make them become the targets of World Summit for Sustainable Development.
