QuietMED 2: Training Session

In the framework of the Quietmed2 project – Joint programme for GES assessment on D11-noise in the Mediterranean Marine region – the Permanent Secretariat of ACCOBAMS and the Regional Activity Centre for Specially Protected Areas (UNEP-MAP-SPA/RAC) are currently organising (14-15 December 2020) a training session on underwater noise, intended for the competent authorities of the French-speaking Mediterranean countries with the aim of :

* Demonstrate best practices in regional or sub-regional cooperation ;
* Promote the use of the ACCOBAMS Impulsive Noise Registry for the Mediterranean Sea Region (INR-MED);
* To present the work developed in the framework of the QUIETMED 2 project and how this can promote coordinated action in the Mediterranean region

European Week for Waste Reduction

ACCOBAMS, the RAMOGE Agreement and the Pelagos Agreement propose an awareness-raising video as part of the European Week for Waste Reduction.

Indeed, the issue of marine litter is a common concern of the 3 Agreements. The understanding of their impacts on biodiversity (in particular on cetaceans) as well as the implementation of appropriate management measures are high priority issues for the States Parties to ACCOBAMS, the RAMOGE Agreement and the Pelagos Agreement.
