New protocols for monitoring Climate Change impacts in Mediterranean MPAs are now available for download

The MPA Engage project makes available 6 new protocols for monitoring the effects of climate change on the marine biota.  These tools add to the former five protocols developed by the MPA Adapt project.

Adopting these protocols, allow MPAs to join to a common and consolidated strategy to track climate change effects in Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas. This will improve, complement or extend the ongoing monitoring initiatives in the different Mediterranean countries. The resulting outputs are key information to support mitigation strategies and effective adaptation plans.
