CIM_FRHow can decentralisation contribute to an integrated and participatory territorial development as well as improved stability, security and cooperation in the Mediterranean?

Will the new ENP be capable of innovating and dealing more effectively with the challenges of the Mediterranean, including migration?

The CPMR Intermediterranean Commission will try to answer these questions when meeting in Rabat on 26 November 2015 for its Political Bureau, at the invitation of Abdessamad Sekkal, President of the Rabat-Salé-Kenitra Region and in the presence of Michel Vauzelle, President of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur Region and of the Intermediterranean Commission.

The debates will be organised in two sessions focusing on the “Challenges and added value of decentralised cooperation in the Mediterranean” and on the “New European policies for migration and neighbourhoods”.

Presidents and representatives of Regions from the Southern and Northern shores of the Mediterranean basin will participate in the work, including in particular Moroccan Regions. Besides, representatives of the local authorities of the UCLG’s Mediterranean Commission will be also invited to take part in the debates.

The European Union will be represented by its Deputy Head of the European Union Delegation to the Kingdom of Morocco, Raul de Luzenberger.
