For a cleaner Mediterranean by the year 2020
This initiative is funded by the European Commission through DG EuropeAid.

Horizon 2020 aims to substantially reduce the pollution of the Mediterranean Sea by 2020 and tackles the sources that account for around 80%, i.e. municipal waste, urban waste water and industrial emissions.

A 2007-2013 Road-Map was adopted by the Environment Ministerial Conference held in Cairo in November 2006, and for its implementation and monitoring three working groups/components were formed: one on investments for pollution reduction (PR); one on the required capacity building (CB) for achieving H2020 objectives; and one on H2020 review, monitoring, and research (RMR).

The ENPI Horizon 2020 Capacity Building/Mediterranean Environment Programme (H2020 CB/MEP) aimed to support the implementation for the period 2009-2014 of the Horizon 2020 Initiative Road Map and Work Plan through capacity building and awareness raising activities, and to promote integration/mainstreaming of environment issues into other sector policies. It was also responsible for the proper coordination of the H2020 Steering Group and the three Sub-Groups and the overall enhanced visibility of Horizon 2020.

Over 130 activities (regional, sub-regional and national) were implemented during which more than 3500 people were trained:
