Resource scarcity and degradation in the Mediterranean region consists of many political and environmental challenges. The Mediterranean Action Plan (MAP) was implemented for Mediterranean states to come together to address the ecological damages and concerns pertaining to the Mediterranean Sea. Its unusual yet effective cooperation model has proved very helpful in understanding the history of the agreements. The birth, description, importance, and historical milestones of MAP are discussed in the first half of the chapter, along with MEDPOL, which is a scientific component of MAP. The rest of the chapter discusses MAP’s planning policies and main issues. The chapter concludes by explaining how MAP has emerged as a cooperative and successful institution, which helped people to understand seawater scarcity.
