How to get there


At the 26th of March 2019 the COHENET team will present, at a conference in Venice, the results of the project and collate feedback on their methodology and recommendations on coherence and management of MPA networks. The conference is co-organised by the European Union Adriatic Ionian Strategy and invites Mediterranean stakeholders to come and speak about their approaches to MPA management, while also being informed on the COHENET achievements. A first session will set the scene on ecosystem functioning and the holistic network approach of MPAs. In the second session management practices will be discussed, and approaches towards improving management effectiveness shared. In both sessions, a mix of MPA managers, EU, national and regional authorities, scientists, consultants and NGOs will come and shed light on various practices and challenges. The closing session will summarize the key challenges for improving coherence and management of MPA networks in the region. We hope to welcome you at this event.
