Managing the Environmental Sustainability of Ports for a durable development (MESP)
Start date: May 31, 2012, End date: May 31, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The intensification of maritime traffic, both in terms of goods and passengers, needs to be accompanied by an environmentally sustainable management of port areas so to reduce harmful consequences for local populations. MESP addresses the reduction of water, air and noise pollution deriving from port activities through the implementation of a multidisciplinary approach, which encompasses technological, regulatory and administrative solutions. The reinforcement of cooperation between port authorities, scientific organisations and public administrations will foster the diffusion and transfer in the Mediterranean area of the sustainable management model of port areas developed by MESP project. Expected Results: • Identification of technologies for reducing and monitoring air, water and noise pollution deriving from port activities • Definition of a standard model to improve the sustainable management of ports and application in 4 pilot areas • Reduction of water, air and noise pollution in selected ports • Improvement of the life quality of port users and local populations • Harmonisation of procedures, methodologies and approaches in the Mediterranean Basin
