The Final Event of the Interreg Mediterranean Biodiversity Protection Community (MBPC) project entitled ” The Mediterranean leading the way – a cooperative framework to strengthen area-based nature conservation actions” will be held in Brussels, on 3 and 4 November 2022.

This will be the occasion to meet with key stakeholders engaged in biodiversity conservation and open a constructive dialogue to scale-up achieved solutions in policy and practice.

This event, in terms of contents and timing, will be used as an opportunity to showcase the community´s results and nature-based solutions found and ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation. Debating these achievements with policymakers and practitioners will foster concrete transferable conservation actions into EU territorial, marine and coastal policies as well as feeding into the discussions to take place at the UN Climate Change Conference 2022 in Egypt later in the month.

During the first day of the MBPC event, several sessions and community-building activities will enable the projects engaged to showcase their main results notably concerning collaborative approaches, methodologies and tools, and innovative governance mechanisms.

The second day will focus on setting action-oriented priorities moving beyond 2022 and on how to mainstream biodiversity conservation into marine and maritime policies, with one session organized in the frame of the Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup of the European Parliament.
