MPAs facing pollution in the Mediterranean: thinking beyond boundaries

28 Nov. / 1st Dec. 2017 – Izola, Slovenia

The 2017 Regional experience-sharing workshop of the MedPAN network will be held in association with the Institute of the Republic of Slovenia for Nature Conservation and Strunjan Landscape Park.

Because the pollution that affects coastal and marine areas knows no boundaries, the challenge for MPAs and relevant stakeholders lies in the implementation of integrated management at spatial (land-sea), sectoral and governance levels of the territories. In addition to technical exchanges on management measures, this workshop will be an opportunity for MPA managers to capitalise on and share their field experience in local integrated management mechanisms related to pollution. Against this backdrop, we will not lose sight of the political frameworks in which pollution is addressed.

The workshop will be held back to back with the mid-term conference of the ACT4LITTER project (Interreg MED Programme) in which MedPAN and several MPAs of the network participate, and that aims to develop effective targeted measures to tackle marine litter in Mediterranean MPAs.
