The Commission’s main objectives are:

  • to study all problems related to the pollution of the Adriatic Sea waters and coastal areas,
  • to propose and recommend to the Governments what it believes is necessary regarding research,
  • to provide its opinion on bilateral programmes and be responsible for their harmonization,
  • to propose to the Governments measures required to eliminate the current and
  • to prevent the new causes of pollution and to propose to the Governments the drafts of international regulations required to ensure cleanliness of the Adriatic Sea.

Starting from these main objectives, the following projects were established in the Adriatic Sea sub-region:

  • A sub-regional agreement between Slovenia, Italy and Croatia on the prevention of accidents at sea and response to the consequences of pollution;
  • Preparation of the Ballast Waters Management Plan for the Adriatic and the integrated coastal zone management.
