Following the conference Malta continued to actively lead the process to finalise the draft Strategy in time for endorsement during the 16th meeting of the Mediterranean Commission for Sustainable Development (MCSD) held in June 2015 in Marrakesh. During this meeting Malta handed over the Presidency of the Steering Committee of the MCSD to Morocco, Malta continues to remain a member of the Steering Committee.
