Introducing the Blue Card Ship Waste Tracking System

Date: 10 February 2016
Time: 14.00 – 14:30
Room: Plenary
Speaker:        Mr. Murat TURAN

Abstract
The Blue Card system which is developed for small vessels, is an online ship waste tracking system via a magnetic card for the wastes of water vehicles and ships independent of which flag it holds and for the wastes received by waste reception facilities.  
In Turkish territorial waters; waste reception services at fishing ports, marinas, similar coastal facilities and waste reception ships, are carried out by using blue card, which enables tracking of wastes.
This system facilitates web-based online monitoring of  quantity and types of ship-generated wastes, dates of waste delivery, facilities where wastes are delivered and any other relevant information.
In addition, with this system the ships can give their wastes by themselves and without any delay.  
The Web Site of the Blue Card is http://mavikart.cevre.gov.tr

 

BLUE GROWTH IN THE MEDITERRANEAN SEA:

Conservation of Cetaceans in the Mediterranean
A Collaboration between ACCOBAMS and RAC/SPA

Date: 11 February 2016
Time: 14:00 – 15:00
Room: Plenary
Speakers:      Ms. Celia LE RAVALLEC (ACCOBAMS Project Officer),
                       Ms. Souha EL ASMI (Programme Officer, RAC/SPA),
                       Mr. Patrick VAN KLAVEREN (RAC/SPA Consultant and Advisor to the ACCOBAMS Secretariat)

Abstract
The Mediterranean Sea is indisputably a global biodiversity hotspot; the richness and diversity of its marine wildlife, in particular, are exceptional. The region, regularly or occasionally, hosts more than 20 species of cetaceans, half of which being considered as endangered and being protected by international and Community law. Under significant pressure from human activities, cetacean species receive ongoing attention from the Mediterranean riparian countries, which are keen to coordinate their activities, particularly in the framework of the various regional cooperation instruments.

This side event aims to present the main challenges of cetaceans conservation in the Mediterranean and highlight the effective collaboration established between ACCOBAMS and UNEP/MAP-RAC/SPA to achieve and maintain a favourable conservation status for cetaceans, in the spirit of the recommendations of the Barcelona Convention Contracting Parties at their COP 14 (Portoroz, November 2005) concerning the relation between the implementation of ACCOBAMS and of the SPA/BD Protocol.

 

Paving the Road to Marine Spatial Planning (MSP) in the Mediterranean - Greece
and
Integrated Maritime Policy - Israel

Date: 11 February 2016
Time: 14:00 – 15:00
Room: Pella
Speakers:      Ms. Željka Škaričić, PAP/RAC Director (UNEP/MAP)
                       Mr. Rani Amir, Director of the Marine Environment Protection Division, MOEP (Israel)
                       Ms. Athena Mourmouris, Honorary Director General for the Environment of MEECC (Greece)

Abstract
The increasing use of the marine space calls for an adequate planning and management approach, which will allow for a “blue economy” in harmony with the protection of  fragile marine resources. It is also becoming more and more apparent and agreed on that marine and coastal spaces are intimately linked, calling for the integration of planning interventions at land and sea.
Since there is only limited knowledge on Marine Spatial Planning in the Mediterranean basin, the need is felt to better understand its challenges and to prepare both the UNEP/MAP system and the Contracting Parties for its implementation. The experiences from two Contracting Parties, namely Greece and Israel, will be presented to this end: the work on the Integrated Maritime Policy for Israel; and a PAP/RAC pilot project implemented with Greek partners (MSP Med - Greece).
