​In this interview Francina Armengol (ES/PES), President of the Balearic Islands, answers six questions on the sustainable use of natural resources on Mediterranean islands. Francina Armengol calls on the European Commission to devise a new strategy that better aligns EU policies and funding mechanisms to the particularities of Mediterranean islands in order to build higher resilience to natural disasters and health crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
