Fispmed ONLUS

The association "International Federation for Sustainable Development and Fight to Poverty in the Mediterranean-Black Sea" – FISPMED - was founded in 2004, based on the positive experience of the Seam project, supported by the European Commission (DG Enlargement and DG Regional Policy) and by the Italian Minister of the Environment. The project created a network of 188 partners from 38 countries, representatives of cultural institutes, NGOs, non governmental agencies, studies and research institutes and universities. In 2008 with a regional law approved unanimously the Veneto Region became a founding member.

Nowadays the association has 224 partners across 39 countries of the Euro-Mediterranean and Black Sea area and it therefore represents over 1,8 million citizens from this area. The coordinating office has 4 full-time people working in it.

The geographical basin of reference is that of the Mediterranean-Black Sea, that share a common old historical tradition (the Mediterranean basis was also called the "Middle White Sea", opposed to the Black Sea), made of meetings and fights of several civilizations (the area includes the members of the three greatest monotheist religions).

Currently, the same basin is crossed by several politic, economic, social and cultural questions of difficult solutions, but it is recognized the vital need, felt by all the members without distinction, to resolve the environmental questions; in fact, they interest the southern and northern shore of the geographical basin of reference and are clearly linked to the common destiny of the whole area.

This is why FISPMED gives a priority character to environmental questions and those linked to sustainable development in line with several international documents.

By consequence, FISPMED recognizes priority actions aimed at:

- improving the water management and demand;
- encouraging the rational use of energy, increasing that of renewable energetic resources and also limiting the climatic changes carrying out an adaptation process to them;
- supporting the sustainable mobility through a suitable management of transport;
- guaranteeing a sustainable development that can become a driving economic sector;
- ensuring a sustainable agricultural and rural development;- encouraging the sustainable urban development;
- favouring the sustainable development of sea, coastal zones and sea resources.
