MPA Engage involvement in the 2020 FORUM of Marine Protected Areas in the Mediterranean

The MPA Engage project will take part to the 3rd edition of the Forum of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in the Mediterranean, organized by MedPAN, SPA/RAC, WWF, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, and their partners.

In view of the experiences gathered during the project activities, we will be co-organizers of a session entitled "Mainstreaming climate change adaptation in Mediterranean MPAs". This will be a thematic session to gather initiatives around specific themes, which are “Management, Knowledge” in the MPAs, a great opportunity for networking and experience sharing within the MPA community.

The Forum event is the last step of a long process of building the Post-2020 Mediterranean MPA Roadmap that began in October 2020 through an extensive multi-stakeholder consultation process and an on-line Forum session in June 2021.

This third edition aims mainly to deliver an operational and concrete Roadmap to achieve MPA targets in line with international commitments, and especially the Post-2020 Global Biodiversity Framework.
