REMPEC maintains this website in order to facilitate access to the Geographical Information System (GIS) relevant for the implementation of the Protocol concerning Cooperation in Preventing Pollution from Ships and, in Cases of Emergency, combating Pollution of the Mediterranean Sea (Prevention and Emergency Protocol, 2002). REMPEC will endeavour to keep this information system updated and accurate through a participatory process. This GIS was developed within the framework of the EU-funded Mediterranean Decision Support System for Marine Safety (MEDESS-4MS) MED 2S-MED11-01, and its activities. This project, approved within the framework of the project strategy of the European MED Programme, is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund – ERDF.
