The Policy Hub, agreed by Barcelona Convention Contracting Parties in COP22 Decision IG 25/18, will foster information exchange and peer learning on policy instruments to boost the development of green and circular businesses in the region.

The platform will include a database gathering publications, best practices, policy tools and links to knowledge platforms on Green, Circular and Blue Economy topics. It will also include a Virtual Community of Practice where practitioners can share news or ask questions about challenges they might be facing in their work. Lastly, there will be an Events section that will be updated with the latest training workshops and conferences on these topics.

But the Hub won’t be limited to an online website, this will be managed by the SwitchMed Policy Team, who will be organizing online webinars and workshops and offering technical support to policymakers on an on-demand basis.

By promoting information-sharing and learning from successful initiatives in other countries, the Policy Hub will support policymakers in the development and adoption of specific policies and regulations, creating an enabling environment for the green and circular Economy in the Mediterranean.

The Hub will include countries from both shores of the Mediterranean sea, but will focus its support activities on Southern Mediterranean countries.
