MPA Network Proposal for the Mediterranean Sea (English / Français)

In this document Oceana reviews the current state of regional protection initiatives in the Mediterranean Basin and presents a varied proposal for the protection of marine areas which it considers essential for maintaining a balance in the Mediterranean Basin and achieving good environmental status.

The objective of the aforementioned proposal is to contribute to the recommendation of the Convention on Biological Diversity to effectively protect at least 10% of the world’s marine ecoregions. Oceana MedNet is an example of how to prepare a proposal for a Mediterranean network of MPAs with a precautionary approach aimed at protecting areas of ecological importance when there is a general lack of biological knowledge.
