This session will look into ongoing efforts to address the impacts of marine litter on Mediterranean ecosystems. The panel will engage representatives from the worlds of science, policy and practice to debate over the knowledge available and gaps remaining to tackle the cumulative threats to the Mediterranean as a biodiversity hotspot, to see how integrated policies can alleviate the impacts on marine life by encouraging regional-level measures and to learn from ongoing experiences on the ground.
