This workshop will convene key Mediterranean initiatives and institutions in the fight against marine pollution in the Mediterranean region, who will showcase evidence on marine pollution impacts on biodiversity and health, delve into the current policy frameworks and governance models in place, and debate solutions to successfully transition towards zero pollution for both people and planet, with specific focus on:
