News Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) Ministerial declaration on Sustainable Blue Economy

The Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) adopted the 2nd Ministerial Declaration on Blue economy on 2 February 2021, demonstrating commitment to promote transformative policies and tools through cooperation.

The Second Ministerial Conference on Sustainable Blue Economy aimed at improving maritime governance while addressing the environmental and climate-related challenges the blue economy sectors are currently facing. Ministers from the 42 UfM countries gathered virtually and agreed to a new Declaration following a broad consultation to which more than 100 experts and representatives from international organisations have contributed. The Declaration also strives to improve regional and subregional cooperation as ministers called to make full use of Interreg programmes and to further enhance synergies to actively support the development of sustainable blue economy in the Adriatic and Ionian region.
