Les Secrétariats des Accords intergouvernementaux RAMOGE et Pelagos se mobilisent en faveur de la réduction des déchets marins en organisant un colloque le 12 septembre 2017 au Musée océanographique de Monaco, afin de sensibiliser sur cette problématique les communes littorales et également celles de l’arrière-pays.  

Réduire les déchets marins est une préoccupation commune aux deux Accords, en effet, cette pollution menace les espèces marines et les mammifères marins sont particulièrement impactés.

Considérant que 80% des déchets marins sont d’origine terrestre, il est primordial de promouvoir toute action en amont et notamment d’encourager une gestion efficace des déchets afin d’éviter que les déchets abandonnés dans la nature ne se retrouvent en mer.

A l’occasion de ce colloque, un scientifique, spécialiste des déchets exposera les enjeux environnementaux et sanitaires liés aux déchets marins; les représentants des ministères en charge de l’environnement des pays parties aux Accords, présenteront les directives et leurs actions respectives pour lutter contre cette pollution. Enfin, les acteurs locaux décriront les diverses initiatives innovantes qui contribuent directement ou indirectement à lutter contre les déchets marins.

Gageons que ces échanges contribueront à promouvoir des mesures concrètes pour éviter les déchets marins !

I Segretariati degli Accordi intergovernativi RAMOGE e Pelagos si mobilitano a favore della riduzione dei rifiuti marini organizzando una conferenza il 12 settembre 2017 al Museo oceanografico di Monaco per sensibilizzare i comuni costieri e dell’entroterra su questa tematica.

La riduzione dei rifiuti marini è un tema di interesse comune ai due Accordi, perché questo tipo di inquinamento minaccia le specie e i mammiferi marini che ne risultano gravemente colpiti.

L’80% dei rifiuti marini è di origine tellurica. Pertanto, è di fondamentale importanza promuovere qualsiasi intervento a monte e, in particolare, incoraggiare una gestione efficace dei rifiuti onde evitare che quelli abbandonati in natura finiscano in mare.

Durante la conferenza un ricercatore esperto in materia di rifiuti spiegherà quali sono le sfide di ordine sanitario e ambientale legate a questa problematica. I rappresentanti dei ministeri competenti in materia di ambiente dei paesi firmatari dei due Accordi presenteranno le direttive e le rispettive azioni intraprese per lottare contro questa forma di inquinamento. Infine, gli attori locali descriveranno le diverse iniziative innovative che contribuiscono, direttamente o indirettamente, alla lotta contro i rifiuti marini.

Indubbiamente, questo dibattito contribuirà a promuovere l’adozione di misure concrete per evitare la proliferazione dei rifiuti in mare.
