States must do more to preserve the environment in the Mediterranean

Council of Europe member states and Mediterranean countries must do more to improve, apply and enforce national and international laws on the environment, and apply an integrated ecosystem-based approach in their policies, according to PACE’s Standing Committee.

In a resolution based on a report by Joseph Falzon (Malta, EPP/CD), the committee said this would require strong political commitment, adequate funding, institutional capacity and a major transfer of technology and know-how.
