ANEMONE aims to deliver, through collaborative efforts among partners, a common strategy related to the Joint Monitoring of the Black Sea, using the most adequate common agreed assessment criteria and indicators, in order to assess the status of the Black Sea, as a basis for further actions.

An improved long-term cross-border collaboration and research capacity in addressing trans-boundary pollution, eutrophication, and biodiversity monitoring, using the most adequate common agreed assessment criteria and indicators, in order to assess the present status of the Black Sea, represent a basis for further actions. The proposed joint monitoring requirements will focus, based on agreed common indicators, on parameters that are indicative of the state of the environment, the prevailing anthropogenic pressures and their impacts, and the progress towards the good environmental status (GES) (ecological objectives and targets).
