MedPAN is organising its forthcoming regional experience-sharing workshop on the “Mediterranean challenges for Marine Protected Areas and Small Scale Fisheries”. The workshop will be held on 13-15 November 2018 in the Balearic islands in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, in association with several partners and pilot sites within the framework of the large Mediterranean programme of the MAVA foundation and Interreg Med FishMPABlue2 project.

The overall purpose of the workshop is to allow MPA managers, fishers and related stakeholders to pool and share information, expertise and experiences and take stock on the current challenges for MPAs and Small Scale Fisheries in the Mediterranean. The workshop thus provides an opportunity for MPA managers, project leaders, and stakeholders to meet, discover initiatives, be inspired and build long-term approaches to implement solutions together.

This year’s workshop will embed the conference of the Interreg Med FishMPABlue2 project in which MedPAN and several MPAs of the network are involved. The two meetings will also be held in conjunction with the Second marine Natura 2000 seminar happening simultaneously in the same venue in Palma de Mallorca. A joint opening session will be held with the aim of fostering synergies between the various formats of exchanges.

Here is the draft programme of the workshop.

Registrations are now closed.
