Activities Priority Actions Programme/Regional Activity Centre (PAP/RAC), established in 1977, is a key component of the Mediterranean Action Plan (MAP), itself part of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). Twenty one Mediterranean countries as well as the European Union make up the MAP, and their common objective is the creation of a healthier Mediterranean environment, resting on the principle of sustainable development. One of six Regional Activity Centres within the MAP, the Centre has built up a global reputation due to its expertise in Integrated Coastal Area Management (ICAM). PAP/RAC is the people who work in the centre, as well as the large network of Mediterranean experts and institutions. Many know us better by the abbreviation than by the full name. We consider it an asset, since by such recognisability, not only in the Mediterranean, our work hitherto was acknowledged.
