The CoPaM is an initiative of general interest whose aim is to initiate, promote, support and develop activities aimed at accelerating the sustainable development of the territories of the "5+5 Dialogue" countries through the enhancement of their world heritage.
The 5+5 Dialogue is the oldest framework for meetings between the countries of the Mediterranean basin. It brings together the countries of the western Mediterranean and was established in 1990 following a meeting of foreign ministers in Rome, with the aim of initiating a process of regional cooperation in the western Mediterranean between the following ten countries: Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Malta for the northern shore, and the five countries of the Arab Maghreb Union for the southern shore, Algeria, Libya, Morocco, Mauritania and Tunisia.
Resulting from an initiative of the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron, the Summit of the two shores, Forum of the Mediterranean, was held in Marseilles on 23 and 24 June 2019. At the end of an unprecedented consultation exercise with Mediterranean civil society, its aim was to relaunch the dynamics of cooperation in the Western Mediterranean by implementing concrete projects in favour of human, economic and sustainable development in the region.See the website
