Inter-basin Cooperation on Marine Litter:
a focus on the Danube River and the Black Sea

Thursday, 4 April 2019, Sofia (Bulgaria)

The Permanent International Secretariat of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC PERMIS) and the International Centre for Black Sea Studies (ICBSS), with the expert support of the Ministry of Environment and Water of the Republic of Bulgaria, organised successfully in Sofia, Bulgaria, on Thursday 4 April 2019 an International High-level Conference on Marine Litter: a focus on the Danube River and the Black Sea (ICML).

The overall objective of the ICML was to stimulate and facilitate enhanced inter- and intra-regional cooperation at policy, business and research levels, in order to improve the framework conditions and to mitigate obstacles for sustainable marine litter management in the target region.

Through interactive sessions, the ICML aimed:

i) to identify common challenges and priorities for marine litter management in the Danube River and the Black Sea basins,

ii) to the transfer of knowledge and experience of marine litter management from the neighbouring basins, the Baltic Sea and the Mediterranean, and

iii) to motivate social responsibility and raise awareness on sustainable waste management.
