The UNEP/MAP GEF Strategic Partnership for the Mediterranean Large Marine Ecosystem (MedPartnership) is a collective effort of leading organizations (regional, international, non governmental, etc.) and countries sharing the Mediterranean Sea towards the protection of the marine and coastal environment of the Mediterranean.

The MedPartnership is being led by UNEP/MAP and the World Bank and is financially supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF), and other donors, including the EU and all participating countries.

The SCP/RAC is working in this project focused in the environmentally sound management of equipment, stocks and wastes containing or contaminated by PCBs in national electricity companies of Mediterranean countries.

This sub-component seeks to build on priorities identified in the NAPs, the Stockholm Convention NIPs, and on existing initiatives in some Mediterranean states, in order to provide a first, harmonized initiative on PCBs that meets the obligations of the Stockholm and Barcelona Conventions and is compatible with the requirements under the Basel Convention to which all the Mediterranean states are Party.

The aim of this sub-component is to introduce environmentally sound management (ESM) to all stages of the "life-cycle" of electrical equipment containing or being contaminated with PCBs and its activities include: Review and reforming institutional and legal frameworks, implementation of demonstration projects, technical capacity buildings and awareness rising.
