The purpose of these exchange visits is to allow MPA managers and other stakeholders to benefit from lessons learnt from successful experiences to build operational responses tailored to their own needs. These meetings are part of the Capacity Building strategy to enhance the management of MPAs in the Mediterranean, developed by MedPAN and its partners WWF Mediterranean and UNEP/MAP/RAC/SPA.

3 exchange visits have been organised so far : Surveillance and enforcement (17-19 June 2014 – Gökova Specially Protected Area, Turkey), The fundamentals of the ranger profession (28-30 October 2015 – Port-Cros National Park, France) and Sea turtles (23-25 May 2017 – Zakynthos Marine National Park, Greece)
