ISTANBUL ENVIRONMENT FRIENDLY CITY AWARD
The Istanbul Environment Friendly City Award, promoted by the Mediterranean Action Plan of the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP/MAP), and sponsored by the Government of Turkey, aims at recognizing the role of coastal cities in achieving a sustainable Mediterranean Sea through the implementation of successful urban development initiatives at local level. The Regional Workshop organised by UNEP/MAP and Med Cities will offer to Mediterranean cities a forum to present their experiences in addressing sustainability issues in their municipalities. It will also assess and discuss the methodological framework of the Award towards further improvement. Read here the draft agenda.
