ML-REPAIR

ML-REPAIR aims at strengthening joint governance on marine litter management in Italy and Croatia. It will contribute to an environmentally sustainable growth of tourism and the fishery sector in the Adriatic Sea by supporting behavioural changes through raising awareness activities and innovative approaches. The ML-REPAIR project, capitalizing the results of the Adriatic IPA CBC DeFishGear project, is aimed at strengthening joint governance on marine litter management and developing solutions among different entities for reducing and preventing marine pollution. The main project activities are focused on testing new educational tools for raising awareness of tourists in the coastal areas and supporting the strategies for removing marine litter through the active engagement of the fishermen community.

Posidonia, in the Mediterannean lost 34% in the last 50 years
It is the most widespread plant species in the Mediterranean and performs vital functions for the functioning of ecosystems. Despite that the presence of Posidonia oceanica in our seas is decreasing, also due to inadequate management of the coastline. The "SEPOSSO" LIFE project (Supporting Environmental governance for the Posidonia oceanica sustainable transplanting operations), of which ISPRA is the leader, faces the complex issue of Posidonia oceanica transplantation, in cases where this is carried out to compensate for the damage caused by the construction of works or coastal infrastructure.
