HELLO MEDITERRANEAN WORLD!
Welcome to the first edition of the PANORAMED newsletter! This quarterly publication will provide you with a summary of the latest actions undertaken in the framework of the governance platform.

This issue is dedicated to PANORAMED latest progress, offering useful information on the main outcomes of events discussing Mediterranean policies that took place in the past few months. So far, PANORAMED has been very active in its role of strengthening multilateral coordination frameworks and is looking forward to sharing with readers new insights on its work in the next newsletters!
NEW TO THE PANORAMED GOVERNANCE PLATFORM PROJECT?
PANORAMED is a project under the Interreg MED Programme co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. It aims to establish an innovative permanent dialogue among public authorities and stakeholders to contribute to informed policy and decision-making processes at regional, national and transnational levels on common challenges and opportunities in the Mediterranean Region.

Specifically, the initiative supports the definition of transnational governance joint frameworks for the identification and implementation of shared approaches, policies, and strategic projects.
