Plan Bleu is developing some indicators for the monitoring of the implementation of the Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development (MSSD) 2016-2025 in relation with the adaptation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) to the Mediterranean region.

The workshop: “How to monitor the MSSD 2016-2025 implementation?” held on 30-31 March 2016 allowed to select a first core set of 34 indicators according the 6 objectives of the Strategy.

An assessment of this first indicators core set and some “indicators factsheets”, elements of a Dashboard on the Sustainable Development in the Mediterranean region, were presented to a workshop that was held on October 17th 2016 in Barcelona in order to improve the first selection.
