Mediterranean Environmental Review Monitoring for port Authorities through Integrated Development
The objective of MERMAID is to establish a state-of-theart of environmental monitoring systems operated by urban ports. The project will review the best practices of ports and set up a list of environmental paràmetres (air pollution, noise, water quality, etc.) that need to be monitored. The project include studying around 20 ports and visiting 6 ports which have implemented an environmental monitoring system with the objective to know what are the sustainability and communication policies of the port authorities regarding environmental issues. Finally, it includes a guideline to encourage European ports to deploy these best practices.
