Synthesis report : mapping of Mediterranean observatories and monitoring programmes for the environment and for marine and coastal activities

Compiled secondly, the report focuses on a general mapping to identify some trends in marine and coastal observation activities in the Mediterranean: the main issues of observation in the Mediterranean, also the Mediterranean initiatives on information sharing, finally the different practices and themes covered, in terms of the sharing of maritime and coastal environmental information. This analysis identifies some of the challenges and gaps in environmental information sharing, such as the collection, processing and distribution of socio-economic data, which, although essential for documenting social, political and economic environmental issues, is still insufficient.
