Document A Sustainable Future for the Mediterranean - The Blue Plan's Environment and Development Outlook: Executive Summary

The text herein is the executive summary of the latest Blue Plan report on the environment and development in the Mediterranean. It provides an overview of main findings achieved by Blue Plan for the attention of decisionmakers in riparian countries, heads of Mediterranean and Euro-Mediterranean cooperations and local authorities, as well as academics, journalists, NGOs, business stakeholders and all those concerned by the prospects for development and for environmental protection in this region of the world. The Blue Plan report analyses and provides extensive information on the dynamic interaction between populations, economic activities, territories, natural resources and milieus. It focuses on six main issues: water, energy, transport, urban areas, rural areas and coastal zones. The text herein has been simplified. The emphasis is on the determining factors and the risks associated with a trend scenario, as well as on the strategic orientations proposed for moving to an alternative sustainable development scenario. It is hoped that this summary will encourage readers to explore the main report.
