Bruxelles, June 22nd 2022 – EU Parliament, ASP1G3 hall

Hosted by: On. M. Campomenosi
Moderated by: M. Dogliani – SDG4MED
The Mediterranean Countries and the European Union agreed, on December 10, 2021 at the Barcelona Convention’s
COP 22, on the designation of the whole Mediterranean as a Sulphur oxides Emission Control Area (SECA) and to
assess the feasibility of extending the control also to the nitrogen oxides , NOx (NECA).
The creation of ECAs will have a positive environmental and socio- economic impact in the area while triggering its
Green Transition through the desired Restoration of the Mediterranean, protecting its resources and biodiversity, as
well as facilitating the achievement of EU strategic objectives and its Missions. Who can/should do what to ensure this
to happen?
