A NEW CROATIAN NETWORK OF MPAs - ZOOM MEETING

Within the framework of the Interreg MED project MPA Networks, in which Brijuni NP is also partner and one of the 5 designated training centre, a new Croatian network of MPA will be established.

The network is called ’Hrvatska mreža morskih zaštičenih područja - HRMZP’ and it is an informal association of 16 managing bodies operating in Croatian MPAs from which 14 are interested in collaborating.

Within the framework of the HRMZP several zoom meeting have been organised since its establishment. Every 2 weeks a new topic will be tackled with the aim of sharing knowledge and best practices for a better management and more efficient conservation.

During the online meeting on 5th of March, the MPA Engage project has been presented. Its main goals, current status and future actions were part of the presentation as well as monitoring protocols and vulnerability assessment.

Since the invited MPAS are all potential stakeholders for MPA Engage capitalisation activities, more detailed zoom meetings will be organized also in the future.
