Two Mediterranean initiatives join forces to boost sustainable tourism in the region
December 14, 2020
The WestMED Assistance Mechanism is organising, in partnership with BlueMed, a webinar on “Sustainable tourism in the western Mediterranean” on 15 December. The idea behind this collaboration is to create increasing synergies between the two initiatives.
The workshop will offer an opportunity for an initial brainstorming on gaps and opportunities emerging from the results, best practices and lessons learned of projects with a regional dimension developed in the Mediterranean Sea in the sector of coastal and maritime tourism.
The WestMED Initiative has been created to help public institutions, academia, local communities, small and medium-sized enterprises and entrepreneurs from both sides of the Western Mediterranean develop local and regional maritime projects together. It gathers the 10 countries that constitute the 5+5 Dialogue (France, Italy, Portugal, Spain, Malta and five Southern partner countries – Algeria, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco and Tunisia) around three common goals: a safer and more secure maritime space, a smart and resilient blue economy by 2022 and a better governance of the sea.
