Webinar 2. | Applying the socio-ecological vulnerability assessment in your MPA

Moderator: Joaquim Garrabou

Speakers: Francesca Barazzetta & Juan Bueno Pardo

Duration: 2 h (presentation + questions)

Starting at: March 25th 2022 at 10:00 Central Europe Time

Learning goals: The second session of the webinar will focus on the application of the knowledge gathered from the previous session on how to conduct a vulnerability assessment using the tool developed.
