Forum of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in the Mediterranean
MedPAN, SPA/RAC, WWF, the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, and their partners, are organising the 3rd edition of the Forum of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in the Mediterranean.
The 2020 MPA Forum, is a unique opportunity to bring together the wider MPA community, such as managers, policy makers, scientists, economic players, regional and international organisations, NGOs and donors from all Mediterranean countries and beyond, to take stock of the current status of MPAs and share a vision on the priority challenges to be addressed in the Mediterranean, in the coming years.
The objective of the hybrid Monaco Forum event is to finalise the content of the Post-2020 Roadmap for Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas. This operational document aims to be a living and regularly evaluated blueprint that generates the buy-in of all stakeholders needed to be involved in the implementation of its recommendations. The finalisation of the Roadmap will be the start of a wide mobilisation to ensure that 30% of the Mediterranean is effectively protected by 2030 and thereby sustain our unique natural heritage.
