Drafting group for ICAM Protocol established


At the meeting that took place on 1-2 October 2004 in Split , five legal and technical experts of the drafting group, together with MEDU and PAP/RAC staff, made the first concrete step towards the legal framework for ICAM in the Mediterranean . All this as a continuation of previous activities on this issue, such as the Forum in Cagliari (end May), which provided lots of valuable suggestions and recommendations for the drafting of the Protocol.

The meeting discussed more general topics in the introduction, such as experiences with other MAP Protocols, obstacles, 'road map' and alike. In the continuation, the structure and the contents of the Protocol were discussed in detail, as well as the distribution of the tasks among the experts of the drafting group. By mid-December the first draft will be prepared and reviewed at an expert meeting. Notes of the meeting will soon be available on this site
