Horizon 2020

The Horizon 2020 Initiative aims to de-pollute the Mediterranean by the year 2020 by tackling the sources of pollution that account for around 80% of the overall pollution of the Mediterranean Sea: municipal waste, urban waste water and industrial pollution.

To implement and monitor actions three working groups were created to address:

  • Investments for Pollution Reduction (PR);
  • Capacity Building (CB) for achieving H2020 objectives;
  • Review, Monitoring and Research (RMR).

The Regional Activity Center for Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP/RAC), as a member of UNEP / MAP, is integrated in the Consortium leading the ENPI Horizon 2020 Capacity Building / Mediterranean Environment Programme (H2020 CB/MEP).

The H2020 CB/MEP aims to support the implementation of the Horizon 2020 Initiative Road Map and Work Plan through capacity building and awareness raising activities, and to promote integration / mainstreaming of environment issues into other sector policies. These activities are foreseen to include trainings, study visits, ad hoc consultations, awareness campaigns and other activities as appropriate.
