Network’s Mediterranean Initiative - Footprint results for 2006

Join Global Footprint Network, UNESCO and the MAVA Foundation for the official launch of the Mediterranean Ecological Footprint Trends report and workshops addressing the economic implications of resource constraints in the Mediterranean region. Participants, including that of the report's collaborating organizations, will gather at the beautiful historic or a rare opportunity to share their expertise and perspectives on an issue of critical importance to the region's stability and prosperity. Government finance, planning and environment representatives, NGOs and academics who wish to better understand the link between economic and environmental crises will especially value the two-day conference.

The two-day conference “Securing Competitiveness for the Mediterranean : Exploring Ecological Footprint and biocapacity trends and their implications for the Mediterranean” will begin with the official launch of the report, followed by a close-door meeting on general Mediterranean issues convened by the MAVA Foundation. Day 2 will include plenary and breakout sessions to introduce the Ecological Footprint concept and how the tool can be used to support policy decisions.
