The 14th issue of the "News from the Black Sea" is out, covering major events carried out at the end of 2020, giving a glimpse of the latest stories in the region.

The Common Maritime Agenda for the Black Sea Regional Stakeholders conference that was held on 10 December 2020 is highlighted in the text, mentioning the possible creation of a "Black Sea Brand" on Eco-tourism within the Black Sea Marine Protected Area and a network of “Green Ports” in the Black Sea.

The aim of the conference, organized with the support of the new Black Sea Assistance Mechanism (BSAM), was to mobilize regional stakeholders in the complex process of identifying flagship projects supporting the CMA.

Three thematic sessions were held on: coastal and maritime tourism; maritime transport and fisheries and aquaculture. Digitalization and the circular economy were included in all three thematic sessions as essential drivers to boost sustainable activities while enhancing resilience in the Black Sea.

On litter, the conference was told that Covid-19 had made the problem of plastic pollution in the Black Sea a lot worse and it needed urgent action.
