======== JUNE 2016 ========

Have a look at the 2015 UfM Activity Report

“The work developed in 2015 has produced promising and tangible results, which now need to be amplified to address the pressing challenges of the region.

We must not lose sight of the incredible human, social and economic potential that the Mediterranean area – as it stretches into Africa – represents. This is a major asset in today’s globalised world. Let us take a more ambitious, more proactive approach towards our future in the Mediterranean.”
