  • L’objectif de l’étude conduite par MedPAN et le CAR/ASP est d’évaluer en 2012 la progression du système méditerranéen d’AMP vis-à-vis de ces objectifs, par rapport à 2008, date du 1er état des lieux : le réseau couvre-t-il 10% de la Méditerranée, est-il représentatif de la diversité méditerranéenne, les AMP sont-elles bien connectées et sont-elles bien gérées ?

    In order to meet future biodiversity conservation targets, it is important to address the challenge of mismatches between ecological and governance scales. This issue was explored in an expert workshop held by the EU-funded SCALES project in late 2010, designed to encourage dialogue between biodiversity policymakers and scientists. Biodiversity experts working in governance and science have called for greater integration of policy sectors, geographical levels and academic disciplines. This would help ensure policy decisions realistically reflect complex relationships between cological and governance processes in order to meet future biodiversity targets.

    These Guidelines are intended for use by all those concerned with the policy and practice of marine and coastal protected areas, not only the practitioners but also decision-makers at the various levels of government, others such as NGOs and academics, and international funding agencies.Through the publication and distribution of these Guidelines, RAC/SPA hopes to improve the understanding of the needs of protected areas management and the standards of management on the ground.

    This guide provides essential information to better understand the role of marine protected area networks to achieve marine conservation. It utilizes current scientific knowledge, institutional experience and global case studies to present the most relevant lessons in building resilient and functional networks. An important feature is the balance among social, economic, legal and ecological considerations, which collectively contribute to management decisions. The tested techniques will be extremely useful for practitioners, managers and field staff in designing and implementing effective marine protected area networks that are resilient to human and environmental threats.
