This Forum stems from a common construction and requires the commitment of all.
Whether you are:
... MPAs are everyone's business!
Share your ideas or innovative solutions, you'll contribute to the achievements of the MPA Roadmap and enrich the content of the Forum by answering this short questionnaire before 20 July 2016.
Beyond the objectives of the Convention on Biological Diversity, the 2016 Forum has the ambition to consider other challenges that MPAs face, related to climate change in particular, and therefore will also echo the COP22 of Marrakech. The Forum that will be held just after the COP22 will be the first opportunity to share the results with Mediterranean actors, especially regarding the role of oceans and MPAs in the fight against climate change.
By choosing Morocco and Tangier for the 2016 edition of this Mediterranean Forum, the organisers also want to promote the initiatives and support the dynamics in motion in these territories. Besides the link with the Marrakech Conference on Climate Change (COP22), the issues of conservation and sustainable development that are locally at stake will therefore be promoted in the framework of the Forum, in particular through a field visit to the site of the future MPA of Djebel Moussa (on 28 November) and a special Morocco session.
