The present layer compiles the marine regions and subregions listed in Article 4 of the Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD), together with other surrounding seas of Europe. The MSFD marine regions and subregions map was developed to support DG Environment and EU Member States in their implementation of the MSFD. It represents the current state of understanding of the marine regions and subregions and is subject to amendment in light of any new information which may be produced
The geodatabase on Main Ports - Waste at ports was created in 2018 by CETMAR using the Ports 2013 data available in Eurostat web page (http://ec.europa.eu/eurostat/web/main/home). It is the result of the aggregation and harmonization of datasets provided by several sources from all across the EU and is available for viewing and download on EMODnet - Human Activities web portal (https://emodnet.ec.europa.eu/en/human-activities). Following the MARPOL Convention waste at ports have been reported by Ports indistincly in cubic meters(m3)and/or in tonnes and classified as oily waste (Annex I), garbage (Annex V), sewage (Annex IV), Harbor Waste (garbage) and Total Amount*. These datasets are updated on an annual basis and includes annual data from 2000 to 2018 (where available) in the following countries: Estonia, Finland, France, Latvia, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Romania, Sweden, Croatia, Malta, Netherlands and Spain.*Total Amounts only report the sum of available values for each of the given units (m3 or tonnes).
