Horizon 2020 aims to substantially reduce the pollution of the Mediterranean Sea by 2020 and tackles the sources that account for around 80%, i.e. municipal waste, urban waste water and industrial emissions.

This webpage aims to facilitate communication among and between the three H2020 Sub Groups, related projects (MeHSIP-PPIF, CB/MEP, ENPI-SEIS), the Steering Group and the European Commission. It is being administered jointly by the EEA and the CB/MEP.
