WG2 online webinars series - Sustainable Small-Scale Fisheries: Success Stories in the Mediterranean MPAs

Published on

On March 17, 2021 at 11:00AM (CET), the Mediterranean Biodiversity Protection Community (MBPC) and its Working Group 2 on Sustainable Use of Natural Resources organise a webinar on success stories on sustainable small-scale fisheries (SSF) in the Mediterranean Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). The event will be coordinated by the CPMR Intermediterranean Commission.

The aim of this webinar is to report best practices on SSF governance from two renown Mediterranean-based projects:

  • Transforming Mediterranean Small-Scale Fisheries”, led by WWF Mediterranean Marine Initiatives, aims to establish a "co-management for SSF" system in 24 pilot sites from 10 Med countries.
  • FishMPABlue2”, led by Federparchi-Europarc Italy, tested 12 measures of SSF governance and management in 11 pilot Marine Protected Areas from 6 Med countries.

A “peer reviewer” will introduce the discussion presenting strengths and opportunities of further improvements for the two showcased success stories.

Opportunity will be given to the participants to express their opinions about the showcased best practices and to share their own experience in order to improve SSF governance and participatory approaches.

If you are an artisanal fisher or if you work with/for artisanal fishers, if you have to manage SSF within your territory or to plan SSF efforts, if you deal with SSF policy making, marine protected areas management and planning, or if you are a researcher/scientist involved into biodiversity protection and management, join us and learn from SSF governance-related approaches and tools that have been tested during the last years, and add your experience to the discussion.

To know more about the showcased best practices:

This will be the first WG2 webinar of a series of webinars on best practices, aiming at sustainably using the natural resources in the Mediterranean region.
