The ninth session of the II Forum
Civile Euromed, within the area Land and Sea Resources, reaffirmed
that the Mediterranean environment, fragile and on the brink
of the environmental balance break down, is in part still
unknown because of the lacking of homogenous statistical data
concerning the whole basin. The Mediterranean area presents
a rift between the north shore – economically rich,
relatively rich in water resources and with a low population
growth rate – and the south shore, economically poor,
with poor water resources and a high population growth rate.
It is necessary to reduce and fill this gap. Among the proposals
it is worth mentioning : The setting up of an observatory
on the Mediterranean coasts ; the implementation of a fish
restocking system ; the setting up of a network of Mediterranean
cities for the control of dangerous phenomena.
