Assessment & Management of Environmental Pollution (AMEP)
AMEP supports the activities required for the establishment of necessary measures to prevent, reduce and control marine pollution and to assist in the development of integrated environmental planning and management of coastal and marine areas. This Programme is responsible for the regionalization of global agreements such as the Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Activities (GPA), Agenda 21, and the Basel Convention.
This section seeks to highlight the work of the AMEP Sub-programme on the issue of Marine Litter
The Workplan and Budget for the SPAW Sub-programme outlines the projects and activities along with respective funding, to be completed by the Sub-programme within a given time period. Some of these activities can extend across several time periods and are accomplished not only by the SPAW Sub-programme but in coordination with other CEP sub-programmes or national/regional/international organisations.
