A new tool to protect the Mediterranean Sea from marine litter is coming. It is the Coastal Cities Network, a network of good practices already introduced in the Italian territory, which from today will be available to anyone who wants to replicate them.

Keeping them together is the ENI CBC Med COMMON project, which sees Italy, Lebanon and Tunisia engaged in the fight against marine litter and in a more sustainable management of waste.

From plastic-free schools to quality water supply systems, from sustainable management of tourism in protected areas to slow food: there are already 15 good practices collected by the COMMON network, relating to two macro-categories: reduction of waste production / recycling and waste management during fishing activities.

All the good practices made available to the territories will be collected on the platform in the “Coastal Cities Network” section, which in the coming weeks will see the participation of the Lebanese and Tunisian municipalities.
