Integrated actions to mitigate environmental risks in the Mediterranean Sea
Med-IAMER provides recommendations on integrated trans-boundary actions required to mitigate environmental risks in the Mediterranean Sea by putting together knowledge on regional Coastal and Maritime Environmental Pressures (CMEP) and by assessing their gaps. It proposes data Integration and analysis approaches, and maps the condition of existing trans-boundary mechanisms to mitigate these risks, focusing on cooperation and conflicts, and involving regional stakeholders.
Med-IAMER proposes an integrated environmental status assessment to mitigate environmental risks to be addressed at trans-boundary scale in the Mediterranean Sea. The approach draws on the main pressures and the conservation level in the Western Mediterranean and the Adriatic-Ionian ecoregions to identify spatial hotspots of environmental pressures.
ETC-UMA has been the lead partner during the project. In addition to coordinating the overall partnership and its activities, the ETC-UMA plays a key role in the collection of geospatial and tabular data for various pressure indicators. Once the database was developed, we did the geospatial analysis of the indicators assessed at Mediterranean Sea level and by different subregions. Finally, we supported the report writing and visualisation of results.
Most Med-IAMER spatial data is available in the MBPKP
