MEDSEA - Mediterranean Sea and Coast Foundation - Conserving and sustainably using Mediterranean coastal and marine resources.

The Mediterranean Sea is home to some of the world's most remarkable environmental resources, unique cultural heritage and exceptional biodiversity.  However, it is also fragile and sensitive to human impacts and climate change.  Its development is concentrated along its coastal areas, subject to multiple pressures.  The fragility of the Mediterranean calls for the mobilisation of all the actors. The anticipated magnitude of climate change and the political, social and economic difficulties make it necessary to create a new vision for conservation and sustainability of our Sea.

This is why MEDSEA has built a network of passion-driven people who are committed to building on new models, partnerships and strategies on the paths of transition and concrete actions to be implemented for a desirable future of the Mediterranean Basin.
