SCP/RAC becomes MedWaves, the UNEP/MAP Regional Activity Centre for SCP

Friday 06 May 2022

The year 2022 marks a turning point for the SCP/RAC, the Regional Activity Centre for Sustainable Consumption and Production, one of the UNEP/MAP Component.

SCP/RAC officially changes its name to “MedWaves, the UNEP/MAP Regional Activity Centre for SCP.”

After being welcomed by the Contracting Parties to the Barcelona Convention at COP22 (Antalya, December 2021), during which the new logo and name were officially unveiled, MedWaves was publicly launched on the 6th of May.
The Centre, based in Barcelona, has also released its new logo, representing a wave, symbolizing collaboration, union, progress and change. A wave made up of circular shapes portraying the cross of two paths that follow the same direction.
MedWaves (former SCP/RAC) will keep going with the good work in the Mediterranean and will keep offering focused expertise in several key areas: circular economy, marine litter and plastics pollution, toxic chemicals, and sustainable blue economy. Support services range from capacity building and technical assistance to the provision of advisory services and training. The Centre translates the knowledge contained in policy briefs and actions plans into actual programming on the ground by implementing best practices and measures.

For green entrepreneurs and small-and-medium sized enterprises (SMEs), MedWaves provides an integral business support programme, offering innovative training material, advocacy services, business and financial opportunities, knowledge-transfer and networking services to develop and scale up their sustainable business and create green jobs.
