The content of the project drew on proposals made by the member regions of the Intermediterranean Commission in 2007.
- To encourage the development of an integrated cartographical and statistical instrument on a Mediterranean scale and the networking of instruments.
- To develop exchanges of information on the management of coastal and maritime areas among the regions and international organisations (the Plan Bleu, the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean, etc.) and European organisations (the European Environment Agency, Eurostat, DG MARE, DG Environment, etc.);
- To promote interoperability between the regions on the issue of maritime data.
