EMD 2023

CCMS team members participated at the event, and the two European, MSP projects in which we are partners were widely presented: the Horizon Europe MSP4BIO project and the EMFAF project MSP-GREEN. Partners from both projects attended the EMD 2023 and the two projects had large exhibitions.

Our Workshop 14 - Achieving marine biodiversity protection targets in the EU -improving governance or planning & management was co-organised by European Union's Ocean Governance for MPAs Project and the WWF European Policy Office. The MSP4BIO coordinator Ivana Stojanovic presented three sister projects: MSP4BIO, EuropeMPA and MarinePlan. The synergies include more science-based planning and co-development with stakeholders. The workshop was moderated by Mauro Randone from WWF-Med, one of the MSP4BIO partners.
