CCMS Director, Dr. Margarita Stancheva was a keynote speaker at ESPON PEER LEARNING WORKSHOP, conducted virtually on 15 December 2020 and presented how the integration of Land-Sea Integrations (LSI) into the MSP can help to reduce marine pollution in the Black Sea. Dr. Georgi Parlichev, member of CCMS Foundation Council, gave reflections on the topics and presentations as key local stakeholder.

This peer learning workshop (PLW) explored the applicability of marine pollution management strategies of other European seas in the Black Sea context. While these practices could potentially be interesting, they probably cannot be applied directly. The situation in the Black Sea is not only determined by the environmental particularities but also by the relations between the numerous actors engaged in different activities.

Three questions lead the presentations and the following discussions during the peer learning workshop:
1. What are the environmental specificities and the stakeholder characteristics that define the situation in the Black Sea with regard to marine pollution?
2. What practices and strategies from other European seas are relevant to addressing the issue of marine pollution in the Black Sea?
3. How should these practices be adapted in order to be applicable in the context of the Black Sea?
