Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development 2016-2025 - Investing in environmental sustainability to achieve social and economic development

UNEP/MAP (2016)

The Mediterranean Strategy for Sustainable Development (MSSD) 2016-2025 provides a strategic policy framework for securing a sustainable future for the Mediterranean region consistent with Sustainable Development Goals. Adopted by Barcelona Convention COP 19, it aims to harmonize the interactions between socio-economic and environmental goals, adapt international commitments to regional conditions, guide national strategies for sustainable development, and stimulate regional cooperation between stakeholders in the implementation of sustainable development. The Strategy is also expected to boost synergies between the work of key national and regional stakeholders, by providing a commonly-agreed framework, thereby leading to increased efficiency in the implementation of sustainable development in the Mediterranean.
