The main objective of the second phase is to enable, at the end of this phase, the establishment in Tunisia of a Marine Environment Reference Center (CREM).

The activities of the LMI have been grouped around four objectives which aim to better understand the interactions between contaminants and marine ecosystems, while offering on the one hand making decision and remediation tools for managers, and on the other hand capacity building so that the reference center has the necessary skills to ensure regional and international visibility.
