Donors’ Initiative for Mediterranean Freshwater Ecosystems

Protect and restore freshwater ecosystems in the Mediterranean

Freshwater ecosystems host a rich biodiversity and provide a supply of water for local populations. Due to human and climatic disturbances, though, these freshwater ecosystems have extinction rates four to six times higher than those in marine or terrestrial environments. In the Mediterranean Basin, freshwater vertebrate populations have declined by an average of 28% since 1993, and 36% of the remaining species are now endangered. It is necessary to face up to these upheavals, which is why the Aage V. Jensen Charity Foundation, the MAVA Foundation, and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation have joined forces to create the Donors’ Initiative for Mediterranean Freshwater Ecosystems.
