Mare Nostrum is an EU-funded cross-border project exploring new ways of protecting the Mediterranean coastline. The project builds upon existing international efforts, such as the Barcelona Convention and the Protocol on Integrated Coastal Zone Management in the Mediterranean of 2008. Mare Nostrum brings together 11 partners from Malta, Greece, Israel, Jordan and Spain, including leading research institutes, local municipalities, SMEs, environmental NGOs and port operators.
The project is funded by the European Union under the ENPI CBC Mediterranean Sea Basin Programme. Mare Nostrum’s total budget is 4.32 million Euro, of which 90% is financed by the EU through the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument.
