Through our five distinct actions, we are increasing the capacity of Mediterranean societies to ensure the protection, restoration and sustainable use of wetlands and rivers
The Green Light Initiative
The Green Light initiative is a way for communities to garner the best professional support from the Alliance to restore wetlands. This approach aims first to build a comprehensive pan Mediterranean map of sites in which wetland restoration is feasible and can provide long-term benefits to nature and people. We take into account physical factors such as surface hydro-ecological characteristics and land use patterns, local expert’s assessments, and the presence of NGOs able to conduct restoration actions. Then, we work together to make a restoration plan and visual models to encourage decision-makers and donors to start restoration actions in the selected locations.
