The Regular Training Programme is an activity of MedPAN that started in 2019. It aims to build the operational capacity of MPAs on targeted topics. It is hosted in 5 MPAs around the Mediterranean basin. The programme is built in cooperation with network partners who also provide training.


The development of the Regular Training Programme is made possible by the financial support of the Interreg Med MPA NETWORKS project, the COGITO project, the MAVA foundation, the Life NGO programme, the ENSERES project, the OFB and City of Marseille.
