Ecosystem-Based Adaptation: "A pulse for transformative changes in the Mediterranean Sea"


The city of Malaga welcomed, 14-16 October 2019, an international three-days event on Biodiversity protection and management, gathering around 100 Mediterranean representatives to debate on effective collaboration mechanisms for more integrated management of our natural resources.

Among the conclusions, it was agreed that nature conservation needs to become operational and involve all marine areas independently of their national administrative borders and using an ecosystem-based management approach.

This event also promoted the “Ecosystem-based approaches for Biodiversity protection and management” Declaration” launched in Brussels in 2018, that was signed at the Malaga City council by several local authorities and organisations such as Medcities, MedPAN, and regional activity centres of UNEP MAP. All concerned actors, from individuals citizens to private companies, public institutions, universities, research centres, NGOs, are invited to support this Declaration and show their support for a better biodiversity protection in the Mediterranean by adding their signature online
