The Marseille Centre for the Mediterranean Integration (CMI) and its partners the World Bank, the European Investment Bank, the French Development Agency, Plan Bleu, Femise and the City of Marseille have initiated a thorough review of green growth and produced the 2012 MED report "Towards Green Growth in Mediterranean countries". This work is furtherred with the collaboration of the Office of Economic Cooperation for Mediterranean and Middle East (OCEMO). This will lead to recommendations in linkage with RIO + 20 and will be officially presented during the conference to be held on 2 and 3 May 2012 in Marseille. The objective is to offer civil society actors and experts the opportunity to demonstrate that the environment is an outstanding opportunity for job creation, social cohesion, and water and energy savings.

The CMI 2012 Med Report: “Towards Green Growth in the Mediterranean countries” was produced by the World Bank in collaboration with the European Investment Bank, the French Development Agency, Plan Bleu and Femise. It aims at giving evidence that green growth is a substantial way to face the employment issue with short-term results. 

On this occasion, a debate is organized on green economy in the Mediterranean region; the discussion will be engaged on the conditions to contribute in a substantial way to create jobs and economic opportunities for public and private actors. A regional conference on green economy scheduled in May and organized by the OCEMO and the CMI will be announced.
