The Consultation Meeting on the “Implementation of Ecosystem Approach in the Adriatic Sea through Marine Spatial Planning” Project (the so-called ADRIATIC-GEF Project) was held in Tivat, Montenegro, on 27 September 2017, following the Coast Day celebration. The meeting was attended by representatives of both eligible countries - Montenegro (Ministry of Sustainable Development and Tourism, Environmental Agency, Public Enterprise “Morsko Dobro”) and Albania (National Environmental Agency), as well as by representatives of PAP/RAC, SPA/RAC, MED POL, MAP/UN Environment Coordination Unit, and two PAP/RAC consultants. The meeting discussed Project’s overview and benefits for countries; Project’s activities; alignment of national monitoring programmes with IMAP requirements; and the Inception Report. The Meeting set the stage for future activities, especially in light of the upcoming Inception Meeting and the Steering Committee meeting. This meeting is a beginning of a fruitful collaboration of eligible countries and MAP RACs on restoring the ecological balance of the Adriatic Sea through implementation of the Ecosystem Approach (EcAp) and improving the sub-regional management capacity through Marine Spatial Planning (MSP).
