About ENSERES project:
The cumulative impacts of overexploitation, population, governance and climate change exerted pressures on Mediterranean coastal and marine areas are leading to undermine biodiversity, ecosystem integrity and threatening the Mediterranean lifestyle. To ensure sustainability, and at the same time, increased blue economy plans demands to protect vulnerable areas and the local economy, the use of ecosystem-based management (EBM) approaches is becoming crucial to address such impacts based on strengthening social and ecological resilience. The heart of the solution would be to set transformative governance mechanisms, building capacities, ensuring sustainable financial and community engagement for bringing improvements to people’s lives and nature. To deal with these global challenges and support the implementation of transformative changes in the Mediterranean region, ENSERES capitalizes on existing transferable models and tools to promote the application of integrated governance and management approaches across administrative boundaries, and sustainable financing instruments across scales and users
