The contributions of this volume stem from an international conference held in Venice on 24-26 May 2007 which brought together jurists and experts, country delegates, representatives from the EU and the UN specialised bodies and the civil society. Objective of the meeting: to discuss possible ways of improving and strengthening the protection and sustainable development of the interconnected Mediterranean-Black Sea ecosystem. Members of the judiciary and representatives of ministries as well as scholars from universities and research centres, were requested to submit national reports on the level of protection of these ecosystems in their countries. The exchange and comparison of data and experiences at the national, regional and international levels, has allowed identifying priorities, best practices and the most effective strategies of prevention, monitoring and pollution emergency response.
