Second Forum of Marine Protected Areas in the Mediterranean – “Integrating Natura 2000 objectives in MPA management”

Date: 30 November 2016

Location: Tangier, Morocco

Every 4 years, the Forum of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) in the Mediterranean triggers a unique process during which all interested parties tackle the challenges MPAs face in the region. The high point of this Forum process is a 4-day event to assess the progress made and what’s left ahead according to the MPA Roadmap developed at the 1st Forum (2012) and now adopted by the Barcelona Convention

As part of the EU Natura 2000 Biogeographical Process, a specific Networking Event on Integrating Natura 2000 objectives in marine protected areas management was organised as part of the overall Forum programme. The Networking Event had the overall aim to share views and provide inputs on how managers can better integrate Natura 2000 requirements into their daily management activities.
