The COMMON project (COastal Management and MOnitoring Network for tackling marine litter in Mediterranean Sea), a European project which aims at building a collaboration network between Italy, Tunisia and Lebanon to support a correct management of marine litter, was launched on 18 July at Beit Al Mamlouk, Tyre, in Lebanon. Sea waste has become a serious concern in the Mediterranean basin, which calls the need for a collective response with an integrated approach, in which the various political actors and civil society can work together and in a coordinated way.

The COMMON project, funded under the ENI CBC Med Programme, applies the Integrated Coastal Zone Management (ICZM) principles to the challenge of marine litter, improving knowledge of the phenomenon, enhancing the environmental performance of 5 pilot coastal areas in Italy, Tunisia and Lebanon, and engaging local stakeholders in marine litter management.
