Prince Albert hosted the members of the Scientific and Technical Committee of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation on March 2, which assembled for its 24th meeting in the Principality.

The meeting was mainly devoted to the examination of 24 new projects concerning climate change, biodiversity and water, which may be supported by the Foundation. After the Scientific and Technical Committee makes its recommendations, these will go for approval by the Board of Directors on June 22.

Among the projects presented were a plastic source study conducted by IUCN and BeMed, a WWF program to combat deforestation in Colombia, and CIESM monitoring of large predator (shark and ray) migrations in the Mediterranean and in the Black Sea.

Since its creation in 2006, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation has supported 424 projects to a total value of €39 million.
