The CPMR Intermediterranean Commission declaration contributes to the debates on the future of the EU, cohesion and the multilevel cooperation at basin level. It includes reflections on emerging strategies and initiatives, migration, neighborhood, youth, maritime affairs, tourism, climate, environment, water, energy and transports, amongst other themes. The General Assembly agenda reflected on following three main sections, which are outlined in the document:
- Future of the EU: Mediterranean views;
- Supporting emerging initiatives and strategies that can strengthen Mediterranean cooperation and governance towards sustainable development;
- Boosting sectoral policies at the core of regional sustainable development in the Mediterranean
It is open to all the different sub-national levels in Mediterranean countries and focuses on the development of the Euro-Mediterranean dialogue and territorial cooperation, concentrating its efforts on transport and integrated maritime policy, economic and social cohesion, water and energy. Furthermore, it is calling for a macro-regional strategy for the Mediterranean and fostering the emergence of Mediterranean citizenship and improving migration policies.
