ADRION seas represent an inexhaustible resource of development and one of the most meaningful natural and social value to protect that in recent decades has been greatly jeopardize. Recognizing environmental risks related to illegal ship waste dumping and inadequate port waste management caused by lack of handling service, project ECOWAVES focuses on S.O. 2.2, Topic 2: “Manage and prevent pollution diffusion” and seeks to prevent the growing tide of plastic and other waste from entering the seas by supporting the development of fundamental long-term transnational sustainable and well-coordinated waste management systems in ADRION countries. Implementation of project activities will result in achievements of 2 main outputs: Transnational strategy focused on waste management for the protection of ports environment and Transnational network for environmental protection of port area. The first output based on management model, is focused on supporting waste management/recycling for the protection of ports environment, which will be shared and adopted by the network established during the project’s implementation, while the second output will set the framework for solid and sustainable cooperation among the different actors collaborating to provide quality services in waste reception, exchange of know-how and knowledge. The main results will be new agreed transnational guidelines, innovative models on port waste management, port areas provided with eco-islands, lighting sign system, monitoring equipment with state-of art methodologies and technologies, as well as agreements signed by cruising lines. All partners benefitting from these results will share new policies locally, nationally and transnationally together with good practices and videos. The added value is thus represented by modern technologies’ implementation, the high degree of sustainability of the model created and its potential for transferability to areas outside the Programme.
