An NGO for better managed and better protected small islands

PIM Initiative is an international NGO for the promotion and assistance in the management of small mediterranean insular areas  

Its objective is the preservation of these micro-areas through the implementation of concrete actions in the field, by promoting the exchange of know-how and knowledge between conservationists and specialists in the Mediterranean basin. Its approach gives priority to simple and pragmatic solutions. Organising meetings and promoting exchanges between nature conservation stakeholders, capitalising on and disseminating knowledge and know-how are the main lines structuring its action.

Initiated in 2005 by the Conservatoire du littoral, PIM Initiative becomes in 2017, after a dozen years, an independent NGO which continues its activities by internationalizing its governing bodies.

Since the beginning, PIM rely on a pool of multidisciplinary experts, site managers, coastguards, institutions and NGOs in the Mediterranean region, who compare and exchange their ideas and experiences and make their expertise available for better managed and better protected island areas.

In the implementation of its strategy, whether it concerns issues related to the improvement of knowledge, governance and the promotion of action in the field, PIM relies on its network and its advisory committee, made up of resource persons representing several scientific and technical fields, as well as territories.

PIM Initiative is an association under French law (law 1901) whose headquarters are located in Marseille (FRANCE). Its governance is composed of 4 bodies: a Bureau, a Board of Directors, a General Assembly and a Advisory Committee.
