Reaching the 2020 Horizon: 14 Years of Mediterranean cooperation on Environment
The H2020 Initiative for a cleaner Mediterranean. The ‘Horizon 2020 Initiative’ (2007 – 2020) has been a joint effort to sub-stantially reduce pollution in the Mediterranean by tackling the sourc-es that are said to account for around 80% of the overall pollution of the Mediterranean Sea: municipal solid waste, urban waste water and in-dustrial pollution. The initial frame of action and scope progressively expanded since its mid-way point in 2014, to integrate approaches and actions in support of pollution prevention and the region’s transition to-wards a green economy. This report focuses on this second phase of the H2020 Initiative.
