  • organizing regular opportunities (seminars, field visits) for the network members to exchange information, experience and know-how on key-issues for the regions involved and existing or future MFs in the Mediterranean;
  • providing ongoing support to the preparation, implementation, dissemination and consolidation of collaborative projects involving members of the network on key-issues for SFM in the Mediterranean, including maintenance of ongoing links among projects via the network's activities;
