MedPAN supports small projects in Mediterranean MPAs

Supporting Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) is at the heart of MedPAN's mission.

To this end, the network has set up a small projects scheme that aims to help MPAs provide a sustainable protection of biodiversity, while ensuring the sustainable economic development of human based activities.

These small projects provide direct support to MPA managers for the implementation of concrete actions, which will improve management effectiveness, test pilot schemes or put in place tools that can be useful to other MPAs.

3 Calls for Small Projects between 2011 and 2013

Three Calls for Small Projects were launched between 2011 and 2013 and 17 projects were funded around five main themes (Sustainable management of tourism, reinforcement of ecological monitoring, communication and environmental education actions, sustainable management of fisheries, consultation and mediation with stakeholders).

The scheme was widely mobilised for pilot and innovative actions that can be replicated in other MPAs.
