New maritime strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Seas

The European Commission has adopted a maritime strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Seas that aims to boost smart, sustainable and inclusive growth in the region. The strategy rests on 4 pillars: a stronger blue economy, a healthier marine environment, a safer maritime space, and responsible fishing activities. It builds on the Commission's Blue Growth initiative and on the "Limassol Declaration on a marine and maritime agenda for growth and jobs", recently adopted by EU Ministers.
While recognizing the work already carried out by various organisations in the area, the new strategy underlines the need to step up cooperation. It will use existing resources, structures and regulations to foster cross-border partnerships and mobilize local, regional and national actors towards common objectives. The first initiative of this kind in the Mediterranean sea basin, the strategy will help develop the sea basin´s blue economy by coordinating financing and delivery mechanisms.
The strategy will be implemented in 2013 through an Action Plan to be jointly developed with the region's stakeholders.
The new strategy is part of the overall Integrated Maritime Policy of the EU, which already includes maritime strategies for the Baltic and the Atlantic Seas.
