The WES project has committed to provide technical assistance and strengthen the capacities of the WES Partner Countries to effectively address the issue of microplastics in the Mediterranean marine environment. In line with this commitment, a Regional Training began on 12 May to enhance the competences of policy makers and other stakeholders along the plastic value chain on technical aspects of microplastics (definitions, types, pathways, impact, etc.); monitoring approaches and knowledge gaps; links between microplastics and chemical pollution; the pros/cons of potential measures; policy options and decision-making based on sound scientific evidence.

More than 60 stakeholders from 10 Mediterranean countries are participating in the on-line training that is delivered via 3 modules. The third module will take place on 2 June, focusing on understanding the issue of secondary microplastics: impacts, existing measures and the way forward.
